A fire that destroyed a Glen Valley home early on Thursday morning continues to smolder on Friday.

Updated: police now investigating Glen Valley farmhouse fire

No injuries reported

Police are now investigating the early morning blaze that completely destroyed an old farmhouse in the 8600 block of 256 Street in Langley on Thursday (Oct 13).

The blaze was not discovered until about 4 a.m. when a tenant in another building at the farm heard dogs barking.

By the time the fire department arrived, the house had been burning for about 40 minutes.

About 25 firefighters and seven trucks from four halls attended.

The house is usually occupied, but no one was home at the time.

No one was hurt, including the dogs.

On Thursday, a spokesman for the fire department said there was no sign of anything suspicious, but on Friday the RCMP announced they were investigating.

The Langley Serious Crime unit is seeking any witnesses who may have seen anything suspicious around the residence prior to the fire.

If you are able to assist with the investigation, you are asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
