Fire at Little Red Bank for second time this year

A Petrolia/North Enniskillen firefighter looks for hotspots at the back of Wallace Lang's office Wednesday night. It's not clear how much damage was done nor what started the fire.

For the second time this year, firefighters were called to The Little Red Bank – one of Petrolia’s historic buildings.

Around 7:30 pm Wednesday Petrolia/North Enniskillen firefighters were called to Oil Street and Petrolia Line to the offices of Wallace Lang. Lang has been running his law firm from his office in Brigden since a fire in the building this spring.

Witnesses saw flames coming from the back of the building where signs of renovations could be seen including scaffolding around some of the building.

Firefighters were able to put out the flames fairly quickly but stayed on the scene looking for hot spots as smoke occasionally came from the roof.

It’s not clear what caused the fire. No one was injured.
