St. Catharines bike shop damaged in fire

The cause of a fire at a St Catharines cycle shop remains under investigation.

Flames broke out at Inception Cyclery at the corner of Grantham and Eastchester Avenue last night just before 8:30pm.

Fire Chief Dave Wood tells CKTB when they arrived, the fire was fully involved spreading through the one and a half story building.

A tenant who lives in an upper floor apartment wasn't home at the time and fire crews were able to rescue a husky from the home.

Wood says they gave the dog oxygen and were able to reunite him with his owner.

Crews will be back on scene today to continue to investigate the cause of the fire.

No word yet on the pricetag on the damage, however Wood says the damage is extensive.
