Firefighters were called out to Fort Langley late Tuesday night after a fire started in the office area of a local business.

Township fire crews reported to Chuckling Duckling Farm in the 9100-block of Glover Road around 11 p.m. to put out a blaze.

There was no signs of forced entry and the fire is not considered suspicious, said Cpl. Holly Largy, a spokesperson with the Langley RCMP.

There were no injuries reported.

The owners of the store, which sells natural soaps, bath bombs, and other personal products, shared photos of the damage to social media Tuesday night.

“Biggest blessing is that nobody was hurt in the fire, it was contained to the back room of the store but with massive smoke and water damage throughout the store,” the post read.

It said the cause of the fire appeared to be electrical, and thanked a “quick acting neighbour” and local firefighters for a quick response.

Restoration crews were on scene Wednesday morning working inside the store, and a breezeway in the Fort Trading Company Building, where the Chuckling Duckling is located, was also taped off.

No words. Utter shock. My little store had a fire late tuesday night. 😞 . So devastated. Gratitude for my quick acting neighbour Meghan 🙏🏻 , respect-and gratitude for Fort Langley Fire Dept. and humbled by how quickly things can change. . Biggest blessing is that nobody was hurt in the fire, it was contained to the back room of the store but with massive smoke and water damage throughout the store. . Will know what the plan is in the morning as to whether this is has to be completely gutted and rebuilt or if it can be salvaged with a thorough restoration crew. . Love that my late granny’s good luck elephant survived the fire. Sigh – Might just quietly cry for awhile. PS. Yes, David is still in hospital, boy do I need a hug 😞
