Fire at Bathurst grocery store

Firefighters were called to a fire at a local gorcery store on Bridge Street yesterday morning.

Bathurst Fire Department deputy chief Danny Boucher told The Northern Light that the owners of Épicerie Theriault's Groceries discovered smoke when the store opened.

Firefighters quickly contained the fire, though there's no word on the extent of the damage.

The cause of the fire has not been released, and Boucher says it may have started in the basement.
