Fire at Mozart House Monday evening

Kimberley Fire Department is seeking information from the public

The Kimberley Fire Department responded to a structure fire at the west end of the Platzl on Monday evening, November 28, 2016.

The Fire Department arrived on the scene at the former Mozart House restaurant and apartments at approximately 11:30 p.m. and found flames on both the restaurant and apartment floors of the building, says Assistant Fire Chief Rick Prasad.

“The fire was quickly extinguished with minimal structural damage yet there is extensive smoke damage throughout the building,” Prasad said.

This is the second fire at the building. The Fire Department also attended a fire in the building on May 14, 2015. That fire began in the restaurant dining room. The building has been unoccupied since that time.

18 fire fighters and 3 fire apparatus were on scene Monday.

This fire is currently under investigation and the Fire Department and RCMP are seeking information from the public.

Please contact the Fire Department at 250-427-4114 if you have any information.
