Car catches fire near Costco Langley

Portion of 64 Avenue and 204 Street blocked Monday morning

Those driving near Costco this morning may have noticed a plume of smoke in the sky.

A car caught fire on 64 Avenue, just west of the 204 Street intersection.

The cause, and other details of the fire, have yet to documented, Township of Langley Assistant Fire Chief Bruce Ferguson told the Times. He was, however, able to confirm that the call came in around 9:45 Monday morning (May 14), and that fire crews were on scene for more than an hour and a half.

According to witness Valerie Caskey, a man used a fire extinguisher on the vehicle before emergency crews arrived.

The left turn lane on 204 Street, and a portion of 64 Avenue, were blocked for part of the morning.
