Fire officials unable to determine cause of King Ave. apartment fire

Bathurst's fire department says a fire at a King Ave. apartment building on Tuesday, January 3rd appears to be accidental, though they were unable to determine the cause.

Eight people were displaced and a new restaurant scheduled to open in a few weeks sustained some water damage.

Deputy fire chief Danny Boucher says there's fire and smoke damage in the unit where the fire began, but adds there doesn't appear to be any structural damage.

The same apartment caught fire a few years back because of a candle.
