BURLING­TON — Roughly $500,000 dam­age was caused by an elec­tri­cal fire at a Sub­way sand­wich shop near the Burling­ton-Oakville bor­der on Wed­nes­day night.

Firefighters from both Burling­ton and Oakville were called to the blaze that broke out in the restau­rant’s stor­age area at the strip plaza on Bur­loak Drive, south of Har­vester Road, at about 8 p.m. Heavy black smoke was seen upon ar­rival, with crews knock­ing down the fire within 20 min­utes af­ter a fast at­tack.

Aside from the dam­age to Sub­way, ad­join­ing units on ei­ther side — in­clud­ing a nail sa­lon, Chi­nese restau­rant and Mont­fort restau­rant — sus­tained sig­nif­i­cant smoke dam­age.

No in­juries were suf­fered by ei­ther the em­ploy­ees or firefighters, ac­cord­ing to the Oakville pla­toon chief.

Bur­loak Drive was closed while firefighters had hoses across the street to bat­tle the fire.
