Fire in South Surrey townhouse complex

Smoke billowing from the roof of a building near 152 Street and King George Blvd

A three alarm fire brought multiple fire trucks to a South Surrey townhouse development on Wednesday morning.

Witnesses said the fire – at the St. Martin’s Lane complex at 15020 27A Ave., near Peace Portal Alliance Church – apparently started with a car parked in a garage shortly before 11 a.m. and rapidly spread to the rest of the townhouse.

Some 45 minutes later it appeared that as many as three townhouses were involved, according to a witness at the scene, while fire crews battled to contain the blaze.

Five fire trucks and four police vehicles were on the scene, but neighbours reported that all residents appeared to have been evacuated safely.

Peace Arch News has placed a call to Surrey fire department requesting more detailed information about the incident.

More to come.
