A fire on Jacklin Road has temporarily taken down a business.

Colwood Fire Department attended a fire at 3145 Jacklin Rd. following a 911 call at approximately 9:15 p.m. on June 4. Spokesperson Lt. Bryan Erwin said they discovered a “small ‘room-and-contents’ fire,” at Happy Homebrewer.

“Just one business was affected, the other two business were operational first thing (the next) morning,” Erwin said. “The fire damage was contained to a single unit and it is the only one affected in the building.”

The home wine- and beer-making business is a neighbour to the Glenview Animal Clinic and Sylvan Learning Centre in the strip mall near the corner of Jacklin and Sooke roads.  No one was inside the affected unit at the time the fire was discovered. The amount of damage was unavailable before press deadline and Erwin said the fire is under investigation.
