Ottawa fireefighters have knocked down a major fire in the city’s rural southern outskirts, near Bank St. and Rideau Rd.
The fire began at a commercial property on Power Road.

“I pulled over and took some pictures. I noticed a lot of black smoke, it was really thick”, he said.
Van Westerop noticed several fire trucks responding to the call.
