FIRE IN LONG BAY LOOKED WORSE THAN IT WAS

June 26, 2003 – A fire that sent thick, black smoke billowing up from behind the Pueblo Supermarket in Long Bay on Thursday evening was put out within 10 minutes, according to one firefighter.
Although flames could be seen licking the air behind the supermarket at dusk, there was no serious damage to the Value Foods building adjacent to where the blaze started.
According to a Fire Service source, some plastic foam containers were the only losses. There was some minor smoke damage to the Value Foods building, the source said, but no one was injured.
