No injuries reported in South Surrey barn fire

Overnight blaze in 4300-block of 168 Street

An overnight barn fire impacted traffic along 168 Street in Cloverdale this morning, though the road was re-opened to traffic shortly after 9 a.m.

Surrey RCMP say emergency crews responded to a barn fire in the 4300-block of 168 Street at 12:25 a.m. today (Jan. 19).

“As a result of the incident, 168th Street will have one lane closed between 40th Avenue and 48th Avenue until approximately 10 a.m.,” a release noted earlier this morning.

The street was only open to single-lane, alternating traffic until re-0pening.

According to Surrey Fire battalion Chief Kevin Beenham, the structure was an “equipment barn” and fire crews extinguished the blaze and “cleared the scene” at 6:30 a.m., though fire investigators are at the scene this morning.

The fire occurred in a “no water district,” Beenham added, so tanker trucks were required to bring water to the scene.

“Once water was established, we did knock it down.”

There are no reported injuries, and no suspected cause as of yet, he said.
