Crews battle garage fire in Abbotsford

The blaze took place before 10 a.m. on Bradner Road

Crews fought a garage fire on Wednesday morning in the Bradner area of Abbotsford.

Quick action by crews contained a fire to a garage on a property in the 5000 block of Bradner Road in Abbotsford this morning (Wednesday).

Members of Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service were called to the scene – north of Townshipline Road – just after 10 a.m.

When they arrived, flames were shooting out of the roof of the garage, which was located within 10 feet of the house.

“It was definitely a huge concern for crews on scene,” said Assistant Fire Chief Craig Bird.

The home and garage were also surrounded by 30-feet-high cedar trees, and Bird said they could have easily gone up in flames if they hadn’t been wet from the rain.

Firefighters were able to keep the fire from spreading to the home. The cause of the blaze is not yet known.
