Victoria, British Columbia — December 5, 2016 — The Victoria Fire Department responded to a fire early Friday morning that damaged nine vehicles at Quality Collision Repair on N. Navarro St., according to a report in the Victoria Advocate.
Victoria’s Fire Marshal, Tom Legler, said the fire was under control by about 5:15 a.m., according to the Victoria Advocate’s report. Legler also indicated a Chevrolet Camaro, Toyota Tundra pickup, Mitsubishi sedan, Toyota Avalon and Ford Bronco were among the vehicles that sustained the most damage. The fire also extended to a storage building on a nearby property, according to Legler.
“There were no injuries,” Legler said, as reported by the Victoria Advocate.
An employee of the shop, Juan Valdez, was interviewed by the Victoria Advocate. He noted that a customer’s family photos escaped the flames, despite being in one of the cars that caught fire.
“They were untouched by the flames, even though the whole car was destroyed,” Valdez said, according to the Victoria Advocate. “It’s a miracle.”
