The Fire Department was able to quickly knock down the fire and contain it to the boiler/laundry room.

With the fire, power has been turned off to half the motel and staff and B.C. Hydro are now working to determine if they can turn power onto some of the affected rooms.

If power cannot be restored to all the rooms, some of the guests will have to find other accommodation until repairs can be made.  The Motel is currently full.

No one was injured in the fire.

The Fire Department will now investigate to find a cause of the fire.
