Surrey firefighters extinguish blaze at vacant home
Nobody was hurt after a dramatic two-alarm fire in Surrey Saturday morning.
It was reported at around midnight, at a single-storey home the 10500-block of 138A St.
Battalion Chief Brian Carmichael says a second alarm was called when crews arrived on scene.
“Six engines, about 25 firefighters, and we did a defensive attack and knocked the fire down. The house was a vacant home, it had been boarded up, but there were reports of squatters in the area.”
When asked if he had any advice for people living near a vacant home, Carmichael says they should be vigilant, and let the city bylaw office know if they see anyone that doesn’t belong.
