District of North Vancouver firefighters were kept busy dousing two Deep Cove fires Sunday.

The first blaze was a kitchen fire in a townhouse complex at 1475 Deep Cove Road.

The call for help came in at about 10 a.m., said assistant fire chief Jeremy Duncan. Firefighters from the Seymour fire station 4 were on scene in eight minutes and managed to contain the fire to the stove and fan hood area.

Luckily smoke didn’t penetrate other units in the building, he said.

Firefighters were called out again to a second fire in a residential unit of the Coveside building on Gallant Avenue at around 4:30 p.m.

That call was prompted by a smoke alarm going off, said Duncan. “Smoke detectors did their job,” he said.

Nobody was in the suite when firefighters arrived.

Duncan said while the suite itself was extensively damaged, no other units were affected.

That investigation has been turned over to the RCMP.
