ST. JOHN’S, NL – Two small and unrelated fires struck a pair of Newfoundland breweries this weekend, although both of them luckily caused little damage and no injuries.
At the Quidi Vidi Brewery, the owners arrived to survey the damage caused by a violent storm that hit the area overnight on Friday and into Saturday, and found a small fire smoldering in their warehouse. It was quickly put out, and seemed to be unrelated to the storm.
Also on Saturday, firefighters were called to YellowBelly Brewery, a brewpub in downtown St. John’s, with reports of smoke filling the three-floor structure. It was traced to a small fire in the restaurant’s pizza oven, which was doused before any major damage occurred.
