LITTLE CURRENT – The Northeastern Manitoulin and the Islands (NEMI) volunteer fire department responded to a fire at the Hilltop Shell on Manitowaning Road in Little Current, this past Saturday evening.

Duane Deschamps, NEMI Fire Chief told The Expositor on Monday, “yes, we responded to the fire Saturday night at 11:15 pm at the Hilltop Shell. There was a fire that originated in a small isolated portion of the building (with damage done to the electrical room in the car wash), with smoke damage.”
