Demolition on Valley View Condominiums (1400 Pacific Ave) started yesterday and is expected to last several days. Shortly before 9:00pm on September 21 (2021) Brandon Firefighter Paramedics and Brandon Police Service responded to a large apartment building in the 1400 block of Pacific Avenue for a structure fire. Upon arrival of emergency services, flames could be seen pounding out of the roof and upper floor area of the multi-story apartment building.
