“Flames were seen coming out of oven area inside the building as well as from the vent on the roof above the oven,” he described.

“Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the oven and vent area by attacking the fire from inside the building as well as from the roof.”

City firefighters were supported by Township of Langley members; it took crews about an hour to knock down the fire.
