Kitchener (ON) Fire dispatch toned out P4, P3, A1, and Car 23 for a possible fire at 155 Kinzie Ave February 21, 2019 at 10:30. Responding crews were updated by police that there was heavy smoke in the building. P7 was added to the call at this point as R1 was out of service doing ice water rescue training. P4 arrived on scene with nothing visible, but quickly changed to smoke showing from the main floor. Two lines were pulled to the side door to attack the fire. The first line in worked on the main floor, and the second line went upstairs. There was very little fire, as it had mostly burned itself out. Regional Police and Kitchener fire prevention are investigating the cause of the suspicious fire. Photos and video shot a couple of minutes after crews arrived. Box 690 provided rehab for the fire.
