Langley City apartment building residents evacuated

One occupant of a Langley City apartment building was taken to hospital for treatment of what was described as minor smoke inhalation after a Saturday morning (Jan. 30) fire forced the evacuation of a building in the 20800 block of 56 Avenue.

The fire, reported around 7:30 a.m., started in the storage unit of a second-floor suite.

The apartment and the unit directly below it suffered smoke and water damage.

Residents of the other suites were allowed to return the next day.

A restoration company was working on repairs by Wednesday.

The fire department said the cause of the blaze was still under investigation, but it did not start in the electrical wiring or the hot water tank of the suite, nor does it appear to be suspicious.

Four fire vehicles along with RCMP and ambulance attended the fire.

TransLink provided a bus as a temporary shelter for the evacuated residents.
