FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Fire Department responded to a call of a structure fire during the early morning hours of Saturday, September 21.

According to Captain Marco D’Agostino, crews arrived on scene shortly after 2:00 a.m. to a single-story structure fire on 103 Avenue.

D’Agostino says the Fire Department was able to locate the fire in a kitchen suite in the basement, with a majority of the damage contained to the area of origin.
