Abandoned South Surrey house goes up in flames

No injuries reported after more than 20 firefighters attend scene on 40 Avenue to fight fully engulfed home.



An abandoned South Surrey house went up in flames Sunday morning in an incident that left the two-storey building completely destroyed.

Officials say the damage was so extensive, cause of the blaze could not be pinpointed.

“Because the fire was such a total loss, it’s undetermined, the cause,” assistant fire Chief Brian Woznikoski said Monday.

“It’s just rubble.”

Surrey firefighters were alerted to the fire, in the 14900-block of 40 Avenue, by a passerby just after 7 a.m. March 6. On arrival, the building was fully engulfed, Woznikoski said.

As they are no hydrants in the area, crews had to shuttle water to the scene. “Four or five” of the 2,500-gallon-capacity tankers were used, Woznikoski said.

More than 20 firefighters attended the blaze and it took crews about an hour to extinguish it.

No injuries were reported.
