Fire fighters on the scene of yesterday's fire at the A.J. Walker building on Prince Street in downtown Truro
TRURO – Members of the Truro Fire Service will be on the scene of Thursday’s A.J. Walker building fire Friday morning to begin investigation into a possible cause.
The fire, which was extinguished late last night, began early Thursday morning, destroying a large portion of the Prince Street structure.
“Everything on the inside of the largest part of the building is still there, but there would be heavy smoke and water damage,” said Truro Fire Service Chief Blois Currie to our newsroom Friday morning. “The fire had just started to get into that side and we managed to make a stand there.”
Currie said, from what they had seen while battling the blaze, the fire possibly originated at the back of the building, but the fire chief said they may know more as they begin Friday’s investigation.
Thursday's fire has also resulted in the Truro Access Nova Scotia office on Walker Street being closed for today because of its proximity to the Walker building.
