  • Duckworth Street Reopens After Crews Respond to Choices for Youth

    Fire crews blocked off Duckworth Street this morning to tackle a possible structure fire in one of the city’s oldest buildings.

    SJRFD got the call at around 9:00 of a possible fire at 261 Duckworth. The building, constructed in 1864, is the current home of Choices for Youth.

    Staff at the charity described it as a normal morning until the alarms began to sound. It was then, leaving the building, they smelled the smoke.

    The busy street was blocked between Prescott and Cathedral Street for almost an hour, but crews seemed to make swift work of it, with a few remaining on the scene. Traffic has since reopened, but there is no word as yet on the cause of the smoke.
