Cornwall Road Fire Call

An early start to the day for volunteer firefighters. Blockhouse was called out to a shed on fire at 448 Cornwall Road around quarter after five. They were rolling up on the scene within fifteen minutes. Mahone Bay crews weren't far behind as they were called in to assist. And a team from Lunenburg was called in to help with a cascade system. Nova Scotia Power showed up to cut off the power to the property and RCMP were also called in to the scene. So far, no word on what may have caused the fire. The last of the trucks were backing in to the Blockhouse hall around ten to eight.
