Surrey fire crews battle large house fire

Fire fighters in Surrey are mopping up a blaze that gutted a two-storey home. As Sarah MacDonald reports, the blaze broke out Monday morning in the Bolivar Heights neighbourhood.


Surrey firefighters battled a large house fire on the morning of New Year’s Eve Day.

Crews were called to the house near 133A Street and 112 Avenue around 9 a.m.

Flames and black smoke could be seen pouring out of a second-storey balcony of the abandoned house, which had also been boarded up.

No one was hurt in the blaze, but neighbours say this is the second time the house has gone up in flames in only a few months. However, there is no known connection at this time.

The fire is being considered suspicious.
