An Oak Bay roofing contractor is wondering when he'll be able to get back to work after his 3-year-old work truck went up in flames in a dramatic fire early Friday morning. Michael Magdalenich is dealing with the loss of his truck and wallet, which was in the truck at the time of the blaze, during the week between Christmas and New Year's - a notoriously difficult time to get anything done as most government offices are shut for the week. "I put a claim in but I can't even get anything dealt with until after New Year's," said Magdalenich. His Ford F250 truck was a complete write-off, his work ladders melting from the ladder racks, after the fire in the 2100-block of Neil Street that started just after 3 a.m. Dec. 28. "There was nothing left of my truck," Magdalenich said. "The fire crews were here for over two hours. It just wouldn't go out."
