SURREY — More than 20 residents were displaced Wednesday (Sept. 30) by an early-morning fire at Access Apartments in Whalley.
The fire is believed to have started outside and worked its way up into the roof.
Roughly 30 firefighters fought the three-alarm blaze, in the 10800-block of City Parkway. It started at 5:45 a.m.
Deputy Fire Chief Karen Fry said one person was rescued by firefighters but no one was injured. What caused the fire is still unknown.
Fry said the inside of the building is equipped with water sprinklers but the balconies were not. Twenty four units sustained either smoke or water damage.
“Emergency social services have been set up” for the displaced residents, Fry said.
