Sirens could be heard in the Trail Gulch Friday morning when firefighters were called to an alarm a few blocks from the regional station.

A four-person crew from Station 374 responded to the fire alarm at 486 Rossland Ave. just before 10 a.m.

“They arrived on scene to smoke showing from the second floor of the building,” Kootenay Boundary Captain Greg Ferraby reported. “The fire was quickly contained and the building was turned over to the building owner.”

The incident was under control within 15 minutes.
