Chilliwack – Early Thursday Morning ( 4AM, March 14) Chilliwack Fire Department was dispatched to a residential structure fire located in the 7000 block of Evans Road.
Firefighters responded from Halls 1, 4, and 6, and on arrival, reported seeing heavy smoke and flames venting through the center roof peak of four attached homes. Occupants were at home and asleep at the time of the fire. One occupant woke up to strange sounds, smelled smoke and noticed ember outside the rear of the home.
