A Tuesday vehicle fire inside a Yellowknife parkade resulted in no injuries or other property damage, the city says.

Crews could be seen tackling a fire emanating from the second floor of the Centre Square Mall parkade building, directly above the downtown Reddi Mart location.

Several parkade vehicle fires have been reported in recent years.


Firefighters could be seen using a ladder to run a hose into the parkade above Reddi Mart, while several RCMP vehicles blocked off adjacent streets.

“YKFD was able to completely extinguish the vehicle fire. RCMP and the Municipal Enforcement Division were on scene to help with traffic control,” the city said in a Wednesday statement.

“No injuries or other property damage have been reported. This incident is being investigated by the RCMP and Office of the Fire Marshal.”
