Bowen Island Fire Rescue responded to a house fire on Miller Rd. Wednesday morning.

A BBQ started the fire said Hanen.



Miller Rd. was closed for a few hours mid Wednesday as firefighters got the fire under control and cleaned up. RCMP opened up a detour through David Rd. (a private road on Millers Landing) during the Miller Rd. closure.

The road reopened by 2 p.m according to a Facebook post from Bowen Island Municipality. Later in the day, BIM posted on Facebook to thank the first responders. 

"Thanks so much to Bowen Island Fire Rescue for quickly responding to and containing the fire on Miller Road today. We are so relieved everyone is safe and no other structures were damaged," said the post. "Also thanks to the RCMP and BC Ambulance responders who were on the scene ready to take action."
