Chilliwack – On Friday evening (October 7th, 2016 at approximately 8:00 pm) the Chilliwack Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire located in the 6400 block of Sumas Prairie Rd. On arrival fire crews reported seeing smoke and flame from the exterior deck and roof top of a single story residential home.
