Crews battle stubborn blaze for nine hours

A house was badly damaged in a fire that broke out at 1 a.m. in north Langley on Friday morning.

Three fire halls responded to the home at 20008 96 Avenue but the fire had already engulfed the residence.

According to assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson, crews battled the stubborn blaze for nearly nine hours, which is longer than usual.

Fire investigators returned the next day.

The assistant fire chief who was at the scene is expected to provide more information on Tuesday about what the likely cause was and if anyone was inside at the time.
