Quick work by Abbotsford firefighters limited fire damage to one unit in an early-morning apartment fire at Imperial and Perdonville.
“On arrival, they had a fire in a single unit and were able to initiate a quick attack on it.”
That’s Assistant Fire Chief Ron Hull, talking about flames shooting out a second-storey apartment window at 2:30am Tuesday.
“Yah, a very good save. Crews were able to get it out within minutes of being on scene. It’s an older building that does have fire protection systems in it, but there’s always a risk in any apartment building.”
No one was hurt, but 20 residents were displaced.
Cause is under investigation.
