There was a fully engaged fire at 3068 Sarah Dr. in Sooke, burning into the early morning hours. Multiple fire stations were engaged, including Otter Point and East Sooke. The challenge, according to a tweet from Sooke’s fire chief Steve Sorensen (pictured), was that there are no fire hydrants in the area. The latest tweet was at 1:51 a.m., at which point the home was still burning.
Not too sure if it is related to the fire, but at 1:30 Sorensen also posted the following to Twitter (
@FireChiefSooke): “A large horse was found running loose in #sooke on Otter Point Rd near Burr Rd. Call Chief at 250 744 0301 if you know where it came from.”
