Five Gatineau firefighters injured in one of three fires in Ottawa and Gatineau overnight

Damage was estimated at $90,000 and there were no injuries.

Ottawa Fire Services received a 911 call at 4:11 a.m. Saturday from a resident reporting a brush fire on NCC property at the intersection of Rowatt Street and Britannia Road. 

The first crew on scene found flames in an area of bush approximately 100×200 square feet. Fire crews used several water lines on the fire and multiple crews used chainsaws to work their way through the forested area.

The main body of the fire was quickly extinguished by about 4:30 a.m. and was declared under control at 4:59 a.m. There are no reported injuries.

In addition, the Ottawa firefighters tackled a fire that heavily damaged the Coconut Lagoon restaurant on St. Laurent Boulevard on Friday night.

Five firefighters were slightly injured in a stubborn blaze on Du Vigneau Street near St. René Boulevard in Gatineau Friday night.

Residents called in the fire just before 7 p.m.

The fire started in a small cottage in central Gatineau and had spread to a small apartment building.

Firefighters called in a second alarm to bring more equipment and personnel to the scene. Some 18 trucks and 45 firefighters were at the blaze at its height.

Gatineau fire said Saturday that the intense heat from the blaze caused difficulties. Of the five firefighters overcome by smoke or heat, only one required medical attention.

The two-alarm fire caused about $279,000 in damage and was brought under control by about 9:15 p.m. Friday.

Fire officials said a number of residents were at least temporarily displaced, but they had no exact figure.

Gatineau police are investigating the blaze.

Earlier, Gatineau firefighters were called to a residential triplex at 15 rue Dupuis in eastern Gatineau. Twelve trucks and 28 firefighters were on the scene. The building had already been evacuated and the fire was declared under control by 4:38 p.m.
