WEDNESDAY桱UNE

 

n June 6th at approximately 6 am, the Chilliwack Fire Department was alerted to a report of a structure fire in the 46000-block of Yale Rd. Fire crews from Halls 1, 4 and 6 responded to the scene and upon arrival discovered heavy smoke and flames showing from a duplex-style structure.

Crews established a water supply and quickly brought the fire under control utilizing a defensive attack. They were able to prevent the spread of the fire to the remaining half of the structure, however the unit of origin sustained heavy fire, smoke and water damage.



The single occupant of the structure was able to exit safely. A neighbour that attempted to extinguish the fire with a portable fire extinguisher before the arrival of fire crews was transported to the hospital and treated for smoke inhalation.

The cause of this fire is under investigation by fire department officials and is believed to be accidental in nature.
