I find arson unbelievable, they play with fire an they do not think of how they are playing with people’s lives, lively hood. so many jobs lost due to really really sick minds…

My heart is broken for Sooke and the businesses that were damaged and/or lost in this horrific fire.

Fran Anderson

 

OMG! What a wicked fire! I hope the surveillance cameras will help to catch the buggers. Sad to think that 40 to 50 years of history/news has been destroyed.

Teresa Martin

 

Can they save ANYTHING from sooke news? other then smoke and water can they salvage something? feeling hopeful.

Out of the ashes there maybe some new hope, take colwood mall for example it burned down yrs ago. In a few years it’ll be renewed to it’s former Glory . It happens maybe they’ll catch whoever did it though, and they can explain why to the citizens of Sooke.

I hope all the people and businesses affected can get back on their feet quickly.

The love & support this community has for one another is amazing! Us girls from Hub Barton Insurance definitely appreciate it!

We will temporarily be working from our Colwood office until we are rebuilt (hopefully in less then a month). Our phone line has been forwarded to Colwood.

Sooke is a resilient town we will always rebuild and help or neighbors. This is a horrifying thing to think it was deliberately set. The only thing good out of this is no human life was lost due to this. A big thank you to our Sooke Fire department and the others that came out to help.

Greg Sadler

 

So sorry for everyone concerned. I hope those people working in those businesses won’t be out of work and without a paycheck! I used to work at the Home Hardware when I llived in Sooke many years ago. So thankful nobody was hurt. Know the Sooke community will rally around everyone in need; they always do! Hugs to All

I am again amazed by our volunteer fire fighters! So professional. No loss of life or injuries – thank goodness.
