Suspicious Fire at King’s Auto in Little Bras d’Or
A weekend fire that destroyed King’s Auto Centre in Little Bras d’Or has been deemed suspicious and is now under investigation. The Florence Volunteer Fire Department got the call to the blaze at around 11:00 on Saturday night. Department Chief Bill Capstick says the whole building was on fire when they arrived on the scene and adds fire departments from Sydney Mines and North Sydney were called in to help. It took several hours to fight the blaze and Deputy Fire Marshall Doug MacKenzie says it will take some time to determine the cause of the fire. The building was previously home to the Co-op grocery store, and later the Bargain Shop. It is the second major fire this year for the owner of King’s Auto Centre. Linda King’s house on nearby Johnston Road was destroyed by fire in the summer and that blaze is also under investigation.
