East side Motel damaged by early morning fire

Prince Rupert Fire Crews were called out in the early morning hours on Wednesday as they responded to a fire called in from the Parkside Resort Motel on 11th Avenue East.

Upon arrival shortly before 2 AM, crews discovered two rooms on the upper level of the two storey structure as the source of the blaze.

Four rooms in all suffered damage as fire fighters tackled the fire, the two most heavily damaged were on the second floor, while the two units directly below on the ground level of the motel complex suffered mainly water damage.

Other rooms suffered some incidental smoke damage. No injuries were reported as a result of the early morning fire and the cause of the blaze has yet to be determined and the investigation into it continues.
