White Rock Fire Rescue has completed its investigation of the fire March 10, 2015 at 14903 Marine Drive. The investigation determined the cause of the fire was accidental.
A reaction between sawdust and the floor finishing product being used to refinish hardwood floors caused the ignition of the sawdust, and was determined to be the cause. The fire originated on the second floor of the building and because of the obstructed view to the location and fog that morning was allowed to progress undetected for a period of time.
The public is reminded to ensure to be fully aware of any that hazards that may be associated with any paint, stain or finishing products you utilize.
