Former pot house burns, police investigate

An Aldergrove building that recently housed a marijuana grow operation burned to the ground early Friday morning.

Langley RCMP found the grow op at the home in the 27500 block of 43rd Avenue a few days ago, said Cpl. Holly Marks. It was dismantled, but no one was found and no arrests were made.

At about 1:27 a.m. on Friday morning, Township firefighters were called to the house and arrived to find it and a detached garage fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters had to bring in water by tanker to the rural area north of downtown Aldergrove.

The buildings were completely destroyed, said assistant fire chief Pat Walker.

No one was inside or was injured in the fire.

The Langley RCMP are now investigating the cause of the fire.
