The Malaspina Volunteer Fire Department were kept busy this weekend, responding to a structure fire.

Chief Dave Keiver says it happened in the early hours of Sunday morning on Masters Road. Keiver says the occupants of the building escaped with no injuries.

Keiver says the department was a little short on man-power, so the Powell River Fire Department was called out to assist in putting out the blaze.

He notes there was no wind, making it easier for crews to contain the fire. Crews continue to look into the cause.
