Community Notice – Fire Contained

The Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government was informed of a structure fire behind the transfer station in Listuguj. The Emergency Management Coordinator was notified and quickly assembled the team of volunteers to prepare for possible evacuation of the highway. The Emergency Management Centre was set up at the Listuguj Community Development Centre (Bingo Hall) within 30 minutes, equipped with water and snacks, as well as masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant. SOPFEU were contacted and two water bombers arrived at the scene to extinguish the fire.

The homes that may have been impacted by the fire were informed that evacuation may be required but luckily this was not necessary. The water bombers contained the fire and the Listuguj Fire Department are now checking the scene to ensure that there are no remaining embers. Everyone is safe.

Wela’lieg to the entire Emergency Management Team and SOPFEU for your quick response.
