Caller reported smelling smoke at Christian Book and Music on Nanaimo Street

The Victoria Fire Department is investigating reports of a smoke smell at a store on Nanaimo Street.

Just before 11 a.m. on Dec. 11, a 911 call came in from someone who smelled smoked at the Christian Book and Music Victoria, said Dan Atkinson, deputy chief of the Victoria Fire Department.

Crews responded quickly and, while no fire was located, began conducting a “ thorough investigation.” By 11:45 a.m., firefighters had not found anything of significance but Atkinson said they would continue to check the building’s roof and mechanical systems.

The Christian Book and Music store moved to 3090 Nanaimo St. in September 2019 after marking 80 years in Victoria.
