Firefighters were called to quash a house fire in Shaver’s Bench on Tuesday.

The 9-1-1 report of a structure fire came into Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire Rescue shortly after 11 a.m., prompting a crew of seven from Station 374 Trail to attend.

“Quick thinking residents were able to get water on the fire with a garden hose, and hold the fire until Station 374 arrived on scene,” reported Captain Grant Tyson later in the day.

The Seventh Avenue blaze was deemed “under control” a few minutes past noon.

The cause is under investigation by the fire department.
