South Surrey barn blaze not suspicious: police

An early-morning barn fire on a South Surrey property that is “familiar” to RCMP was not suspicious, police say.

An early-morning barn fire on a South Surrey property that is “familiar” to RCMP was not suspicious, police say.

Police were called to the blaze, in the 3800-block of 152 Street, just before 3 a.m. Saturday.

Officers arrived to find “a storage barn totally engulfed in flames,” Cpl. Bert Paquet said.

A resident of the property told police he had “no idea” how it started, Paquet said.

While police were later told “a male at the scene had information about a potential suspect,” Paquet said investigators found “no indication that the fire was started intentionally.”

It’s unknown what was being stored in the barn, Paquet added.

He would not disclose why police had been to the property on previous occasions.

“We are familiar with that residence… for a plethora of calls for services,” he said.

“Nothing that would represent a public-safety issue.”

With no power or water service to the barn, fire crews had to shuttle water in by tanker to fight the blaze.
