    Cowichan's third house fire in three days claims Diana Drive home

    The structure fire was reported at 6:49 p.m. Duncan Fire Department was called for mutual aid with their pumpers and manpower. Thursday's fire marks the third house fire in as many days in the Cowichan region.

    Arson is not suspected as a third home in as many days was damaged by fire Thursday night, North Cowichan's south-end fire chief said.

    “No, none,” Rob MacDowell said when asked if there was a connection between the three blazes.

    Rob Clark, North Cowichan's assistant to the fire commissioner, was unavailable for comment about possible causes of the trio of recent fires.

    The couple that owns a home 6496 Diana Drive, off Wicks Road, was not injured during Thursday evening's blaze believed to have started in the garage, MacDowell said.

    The fire saw 20 North Cowichan firefighters, plus 10 from Duncan's hall, fight the blaze that erupted at around 7 p.m.

    A boat and trailer, plus a car in the double garage, were toast as was a camper unit in the driveway, he explained.

    Fire swept into rooms above the garage, but the blaze was contained to the garage due to a fire wall between the garage and the main part of the home, the chief said.

    “There was heavy smoke damage to the rest of the house,” he said Friday morning as crews cooled smoldering hot spots on scene.

    Fire crews stopped the blaze from affecting nearby properties, he said, noting a fence was charred.

    Thursday's fire follows two others this week.

    On Tuesday, a home on McKinstry Place in Duncan received significant fire damage to the home's back entrance.

    On Wednesday, a log home in Sahtlam was destroyed by fire, leaving its owner homeless.

    Investigation continued into all three fires.

    They say things come in threes. This time they came in spades, too...
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

    And apparently there was toast involved in this fire too.
