The Pine Street home was reduced to rubble around 8:20 p.m. on Feb. 27, according to a Nanaimo RCMP media release. The sound of the blast was heard around the city.
Not long after the shooting, a vehicle was discovered on fire several blocks away.
Police believe the crash occurred when a woman lost control of her vehicle, crossed over the meridian and collided with a driver travelling the opposite direction.
The rule will go into effect tomorrow (Nov. 9).
Island Health said it has declared an outbreak of COVID-19 at Tofino General Hospital after evidence of transmission in the inpatient unit.
The highway is open in both directions, after being closed for around two hours, according to police.
The health region said it continues to see increased patient volumes due to the record-breaking heat wave as Canada Day approaches — typically one of the busiest days for emergency room visits.
Three patients have tested positive and the outbreak is limited to the high intensity rehab unit, Island Health said.
“Unless we have these facilities on site, we are not going to be able to treat heart attacks,” said Dr. Arun Natarajan, a cardiologist at NRGH. “It’s very unusual that we don’t have this facility here.”
