Fire damages Surrey townhouse

Incident happened in the 8300-block of 163rd Street

A fire broke out at a Fleetwood townhouse complex Friday evening (Oct. 25).

Surrey Fire Service received the call for the fire in the 8300-block of 163rd Street just after 7 p.m., said David Burns, assistant chief of operations.

Burns said the fire started on the exterior of one unit, and spread to an additional home. He said crews extinguished the fire before it could enter the building.

A Black Press Media freelancer said there was a “quick response and aggressive attack” by firefighters which prevented it from being a “very large and devastating fire.”

There were no injuries, Burns said, but residents of one of the units were unable to spend the night in their home.

There is no report on the cause of the fire yet.
