Two vehicles claimed by fires

Two separate incidents in almost the same part of the highway burn two vehicles

The Nanoose Bay Fire Department was scrambled to Highway 19 twice in a few days to douse vehicle fires at almost the same time and same spot on the road.

Fire chief Doug Penny said the first fire involved an older Ford Tempo that burst into flames at 5:23 p.m. as it headed north at top of the hill near the Esso station, while the second, on April 5, caught fire as it headed south between Dawson and the Esso station at 5:26 p.m.

“We’re not really sure what started the fires,” Penny said. “They ended up with fire coming out from under the hood.”

Both vehicles, he added, were damaged beyond repair but nobody was injured.
