A faulty dishwasher is likely to blame for a blaze that tore through a Quadra/Cedar Hill family’s home while they were out on Sunday afternoon.
Neighbours called the Saanich fire department just before 1 p.m., Dec. 18 when they saw smoke coming from the house, located at 3730 Savannah Ave.
Three fire engines, a ladder truck and command vehicle arrived to find a kitchen fire and heavy smoke damage. Loss is estimated at $150,000.
No one was inside the home during the fire and no injuries were reported.
