Fire burns down 2 shacks at Iqaluit’s IOL Beach
No injuries reported in blaze fuelled by strong wind
Police are investigating after a fire at Iqaluit’s IOL Beach burned down two shacks Thursday night.
Two officers and four firefighters attended the Inuit-owned beach around 9 p.m. and doused the fire after it had burned down two shacks and reached two others, according to city spokesperson Lisa Milosavljevic.
“The wind and construction of the shack contributed to a fast growth of fire,” Milosavljevic wrote in a statement.
There were no reported injuries.
