Three people escaped unharmed from a fire in a basement suite in a Campbell River home.

Campbell River Fire Chief Thomas Doherty said crews were called out just before 1 p.m. Wednesday. Smoke was coming from the basement when they arrived, and the occupants were outside.

“The fire crews were able to make a quick entry,” he said. “The home was located just within a couple of blocks of the fire station.”

The blaze was contained to one area of the basement.

“The home did suffer some smoke damage,” Doherty said.
