Smart Meter Fire at Quinte West FIRE HALL

October 1st, 2017 by 

Trenton / Quinte, Ontario

The Quinte West Fire department’s response to a late Saturday afternoon fire was very fast – it was at their own station.

Around 5 p.m. yesterday, Fire Captain Chris Wigley and another firefighter were in the office at their headquarters on 165 Front Street in Trenton when they heard a cracking and popping sound that caused the lights in the building to immediately go out.

As the two men were preparing to investigate, smoke started coming out of the fuse panel, causing the smoke detector to go off.

Once outside, they discovered the hydro meter on the building had caught fire.

The blaze was promptly put out. Hydro One was called in, as well as an electrician.

There’s no damage estimate as of yet, according to Quinte West Fire Chief John Whalen.
