A Metchosin home has taken moderate damage after a fire Sunday morning.

Firefighters from Metchosin, East Sooke, Sooke and Otter Point arrived at the incident to find a suite above a garage ablaze. According to Metchosin Rescue Chief Stephanie Dunlop, the suite was completely damaged, as it had been burning “for a while before crews arrived”.
