Fire on Third Avenue

Wednesday, May 6, 2015 @ 10:34 PM


Prince George, B.C.-   Flames erupted  on Third Avenue in Downtown Prince George this evening.

The fire, which is believed to have  been reported around 9:30 this evening,   destroyed a building  between Homework and Nancy O’s restaurant on Third Avenue.

Fire fighters had to  cut through  plywood  that was covering the door  of the business that  was most recently “Flipside”,  where old  records and CD’s  could be  repaired, bought and sold.

One witness  tells 250News  when the plywood was removed,  first there was smoke then “It was  like  a bomb went offfire on third2,  the flames just shot out everywhere”.

There was no one in the building at the time.

Fire fighters remain on scene dealing with hot spots.   There is no word yet on  possible  cause or estimate of damage.






It is sad to see more businesses go up in smoke in PG

Seems like we’re losing our old downtown one or two buildings at a time. Sad.

Oh, No! Homeworks just moved into that building and had done a great deal of work to make it into a cool boutique spot and Nancy’Os just has to be resurrected – some of the best food and entertainment in town!

What a tragedy. I agree the old wooden buildings downtown are quickly disappearing to fires – the biggest risk to old structures.
