Two house fires overnight in Whalley

SURREY — Surrey firefighters are investigating two Whalley house fires that happened about two and a half hours apart from one another this past weekend.

“It’s too early to determine if they’re connected,” said Asst. Fire Chief John Lehmann. The fire department had investigators on scene Monday morning trying to determine what caused the fires.

Lehmann said investigators don’t yet know if the fires were deliberately set.

The first fire broke out at about 11 p.m. Sunday, destroying a two-storey vacant house in the 10500-block of 132nd Street.

The second fire destroyed a boarded-up, abandoned single-storey house in the 10600-block of Whalley Boulevard at about 1:30 a.m. Monday.

No one was injured in either fire.
