Langley City and Township firefighters doused a fire before it could spread far from one apartment on 201A Street Wednesday.

No injuries in apartment fire

An apartment fire gutted one corner of a small complex.

Firefighters are still investigating the cause of a Wednesday morning fire that gutted one unit of a Langley City apartment building.

The firefighters were called to Carroll Court on 201A Street north of 56th Avenue at about 8 a.m., said Chief Rory Thompson.

The Township Fire Department also offered assistance, with 26 firefighters from the City and the Willoughby fire hall taking part.

No one was injured, and a number of cats were also rescued unharmed, said Capt. Rob Gunn.

“They were all fine,” Gunn said.

Firefighters managed to keep the flames from spreading to other units.

“It was basically confined to the second floor,” Gunn said.

The fire and smoke damaged the third-floor unit above the main fire, and all three units on the corner suffered water damage.

Gunn said the cause of the fire remains undetermined, and the investigation is still ongoing.
