Surrey fire crews douse a fire in the 8800-block 134A Street on Wednesday morning.

Three Surrey fires in an hour Wednesday morning

The largest blaze occurred in a home with two secondary suites.

A Newton home with two unauthorized suites has suffered extensive damage in a fire.

Surrey fire crews were called out to a home in the  8800-block of 134A Street Wednesday at about 10 a.m. They arrived to find the home completely ablaze, with flames shooting through the roof.

Firefighters say there was nobody home at the time, but said there were two suites in the residence.

Surrey’s bylaws do not allow homes with multiple suites.

Deputy Fire Chief Jon Caviglia said inspectors believe the fire began in the back of the house.

The fire is not considered suspicious at this point, but it has been determined that it started on the outside the back of the house.

Damage is described as extensive.

It was one of three blazes Surrey fire crews attended in about an hour Wednesday (Aug. 1) morning.

One was a kitchen fire on Bear Creek Drive in Newton and another was a home near Surrey Memorial Hospital.

No injuries have been reported.
