UPDATED: Structure fire in Aldergrove sends one to hospital

It took 25 firefighters to contain the blaze on the 25800-block of Fraser Highway

It took a crew of 25 Langley Township firefighters to contain a blaze inside a home on the 25800-block of Fraser Highway on Wednesday morning.

One person was taken to hospital in unknown condition, according to deputy fire chief Russ Jenkins.

By 10:30 a.m. more apparatus, with a total of six units on-scene, were called into help “knock down” the structure fire, said Jenkins.

By 10:40 a.m. the fire – which was dominant in the upper back floor of the house – was contained.

Jenkins said there remains a fair amount of damage to the home.

As of now, crews are on-site looking for hot spots and potential causes for the blaze.

Fraser Highway between 256th and 260th Streets is reopen to traffic.
