The Town and Country Motel caught fire Thursday morning. Fortunately

UPDATE: Arson suspected at Town and Country Motel

No one seriously hurt in early Thursday morning blaze.



Fire crews now suspect arson in a Thursday morning blaze that hit the Town and Country Motel.

A fire broke out early Thursday morning at the Town and Country Motel and Trailer Park, 8293 King George Blvd.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but arson is suspected and its origin is believed to be on the back porch of the building.

The Surrey Fire Department received a call at just before 5 a.m. and arrived to find the two-storey motel office ablaze.

Three occupants were found outside the building and no one was inside when crews arrived.

No one was seriously hurt in the fire, but one firefighter was hit with a piece of the ceiling when it fell.

Fire crews had the fire out in about a half an hour.

It’s expected the incident will become a police file when the investigation by Surrey firefighters is complete.
