Chemainus Fire Department members arrived at Copper Canyon Timber on River Road last Thursday afternoon to find smoke rising from a portable office.
Martin Drakeley, manager of fire and bylaw services for the Municipality of North Cowichan, indicated a malfunctioning air conditioner caused some damage to the inside part of the office structure.
”This was handled by an engine company from Chemainus with no injuries or issues,” he added.
Chemainus had three trucks on the scene after the call was received around 1 p.m.
The first firefighters to arrive got inside the building where the smoke was coming from and removed a few objects that had been slightly burnt.
