Crews battling large storage shed fire in Kitchener (update)

Damages pegged at around $200,000

About 19 firefighters from four stations were on scene in the Victoria Street and Natchez Road area of Kitchener.

The call came in around 7:04 p.m. on Thursday as fire ripped through a large steel-clad storage barn.

Officials say the building has been boarded up for some time, and crews had to force open the doors to battle the blaze. However, they didn't enter the building due to structural concerns as the roof was expected to collapse.

They add it's too early to speculate on what caused the fire.

There are no reported injuries and damage is pegged at around $200,000. The property owner is being contacted as the building won’t be able to be saved.

Lanes on Victoria Street were blocked approaching Natchez. Crews were on scene for four hours.
