-S/Sgt Jeff McArthur, Sooke RCMP
On Monday November 28th, at 6:20 p.m. the Sooke RCMP, along with Sooke Fire and Rescue responded to a report of a trailer on fire, at Walse Road in Sooke.
The residents of the trailer were not inside at the time, and no one was injured.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Sooke RCMP. This unit is considered a travel trailer, as opposed to a mobile home.
The trailer was completely destroyed in this fire.
According to various posts on Facebook, that trailer housed a family of three: a couple and their child, along with a dog.
“My daughter, my hubby and myself are left with nothing but the clothes on our backs,” posted Delonna Dame on a Sooke Group on Facebook. “We have been living in our rv for months I was in Victoria buying a generator and preparing to move to a great spot a lovely lady was going to rent to us but now we have lost absolutely everything!”
