t 9:37 p.m. Thursday, firefighters from fire halls 1 and 4 responded to a single-storey commercial structure fire in the 5700 block of Vedder Road.

Upon arrival, fire crews were met by staff and upon further investigation a small fire was burning at the rear of the commercial grill. Firefighters quickly knocked down the fire with a portable fire extinguisher. There was no smoke or fire damage that was due to the fact that staff quickly initiated the wet chemical fire suppression system which helped control the fire.

There were no firefighter injuries.

Cause of the fire is accidental.
