Sooke News Mirror office relocated

After the Sooke fire community newspapers finds new premises

The Sooke News Mirror has been relocated to Seaview Business Centre after fire destroyed their premises on July 31.

The early morning blaze was a difficult fire to control as the flames travelled through the building below the roof. Thousands of gallons of water was used to squelch the fire and in the process the archives and a lot of paper was destroyed in the Sooke News Mirror office.

By pulling together as a team, the staff at the Mirror were able to recover a few items and, most importantly, the data in the computers. Sooke firefighters aided in the recovery. They managed to put out the next edition on time.

The temporary office is at 1A, 6631 Sooke Road, directly across from Home Hardware.

“We managed to relocate to Seaview Business Centre and although a little smaller we’re going to make it work,” said publisher Rod Sluggett.

The phone number (250-642-5752) and email addresses remain the same. Copies of the paper can be picked up at that location.
