A fire that broke out Tuesday afternoon on 272nd Street has now claimed an Aldergrove home.
Langley Township firefighters were on scene at a house fire on a farm in Aldergrove Tuesday afternoon.
The fire was reported at about 3 p.m. on Tuesday, in the 4200 block of 272nd Street, said deputy fire chief Bruce Ferguson.
Several residents had been displaced but were not injured. One firefighter was being checked over by BC Ambulance paramedics, but it was thought he was suffering from exhaustion, Ferguson said.
Three halls were involved in fighting the fire: Halls 3, 7 and hauled water from the nearest hydrant to the rural site, said Ferguson.
The damage to the structure of the home was too extensive for investigators to go inside to investigate the cause of the fire.
The Aldergrove home is beyond repair and will likely be condemned, another member of the fire department confirmed.
