UPDATE: Sunday’s Valley house fire under investigation

Reports say one person was sent to hospital after a blaze broke out on the Aldergrove-Abby border.

Fire crews responded to a fully involved house fire at at 276 Street and 28 Avenue on the Aldergrove-Abbotsford border at about 4 p.m. Sunday.

Abbotsford assistant fire Chief Craig Bird said firefighters arrived to find fire on the main floor of the house.

A complicated structure due to multiple additions to the home made it a hard fire to fight, he noted.

“It’s going to be a long drawn out process of tearing the ceiling apart and getting at the hot spots,” Bird said.

A neighbour said he first noticed the smell of the house burning before he saw the flames.

“I could smell plastic burning,” said Michael Davies. “Then the smoke was coming out fast and furious.”

One person was taken to hospital with minor smoke inhalation. The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
