Surrey firefighters snuff fire at abandoned, boarded-up house

Nobody hurt in Monday morning blaze at 133 Street and 112 Avenue in Surrey

Surrey firefighters took down house fire at 133 Street and 112 Avenue in Bolivar Heights at about 8:45 Monday morning.

Flames were shooting out the window of the two-story home.

“It was an abandoned house right on the corner,” Battalion Chief Andy George told the Now-Leader. “It turned into a second alarm, it was fully involved when we arrived.”

Nobody was hurt.

“It was uninhabited — it was boarded up. We’re sending an inspector over there now, trying to determine the cause.”

Neighbours told a Black Press freelancer that the home has been boarded up since a fire burned there a few months ago.

The two-alarm fire brought about 20 firefighters to the scene.

They battled it from the outside initially before entering the house to fully extinguish the blaze.
