Neighbour helps save Garrison Village home from fire

No one was injured during a vehicle fire in Niagara-on-the-Lake Wednesday night, thanks to a neighbour who knew what they were doing.

NOTL fire crews were called to 17 Garrison Village Drive at 8:54 p.m. for a pickup truck fire in the driveway.

The truck was just two feet from the home, but fire chief Nick Ruller said a neighbour used a garden hose to fend off the flames and it didn't spread to the house.

He “did a phenomenal job keeping the fire in check” until fire crews arrived, Ruller said. “Humble, but made a huge impact.”

Firefighters arrived on scene in eight minutes, he said, and “knocked down” the fire within three or four minutes.
