While driving to the scene of a motor vehicle crash on Friday morning, a Township of Langley firefighter noticed smoke billowing from a house.

The blaze, reported by the local firefighter around 3 a.m., was at a home located at 30th Avenue and 240th Street.

“It appears there are reports that the fire may have been a result of an explosion,” explained Andy Hewitson, assistant fire chief with the Township.

“Crews arrived on scene to find the home fully involved,” he said. “Crews were quick to prevent the spread of the fire to nearby buildings and trees on the property.”

The investigation is ongoing.
