Just before 4:00 a.m. Friday morning, Sooke Firefighters along with Metchosin and Otter Point attended a fully engulfed fire along the 5100 block of Sooke Road, just west of Connie Rd. According to Chief Steven Sorensen’s Twitter account, “Occupant of #sooke rd fire was transported to hospital for burns & smoke inhalation he received attempting to fight the fire in mobile home.” Traffic on Sooke Road was freely flowing again by 6 a.m.
CORRECTION: According to Sorensen on CBC Radio, it was a fifth wheel trailer, not a mobile home. -Britt
