Two Fire Departments Battle Blaze Near Eganville


Firefighters from two local departments were kept busy on Sunday evening with a building fire just outside Eganville.

The call came in at around 6:00 p.m. as a report of an older, abandoned building that was on fire along Highway 60 just east of the community.

North Algona Wilberforce and Bonnechere Valley Firefighters were both involved in the effort to put out the fire.

Officials say traffic along Highway 60 was restricted for awhile as firefighters worked at the scene.

The incident was eventually handed over to the NAW fire department, since it fell in their geographic territory.

There's no word on a cause at this time.
