A big fire that began just after 10:00 p.m. Feb. 26 at rowhouse unit at the end of the 300-section of the Creekside Village complex in downtown Iqaluit was spreading through adjacent rowhouses by 11:30 p.m. that evening. Iqaluit firefighters were directing streams of water towards units at the back of the complex, while numerous residents looked on. Residents of the 300 block of rowhouses are asked to go to the lobby of the Frobisher Inn to hear more updates. Those who are unable to go there are asked to call the RCMP at 979-1111 to provide the RCMP with their location to ensure that all residents are accounted for. Most units in the affected section of the complex were occupied by Nunavut Arctic College students and their families, many of whom are now being offered accomodation at the Frobisher Inn.
