May 30, 2019

The Hillview Road fire at Notre Vue Estate Winery and Vineyard was reported about 8:40 p.m. and firefighters found flames at the large warehouse, said Cyndi Foreman, spokeswoman for the new fire district. The fire appeared to have started just outside the building and spread inside where the business had a tasting room, offices and the barrel storage, Foreman said. The fire was stopped inside but there also was smoke damage throughout. Damage to the building was estimated at $500,000. The loss of the wine was being determined but could be upward of $2 million, Foreman said.
