Submitted.At 10:24pm Abbotsford Fire Rescue Services (AFRS) responded to a report of a barn fire at 31300 Townshipline Road.
On arrival, fire crews discovered that a large barn complex was totally involved with fire.
The barn was a total loss but firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to other areas of the property.
Due to fact that there was no fire hydrant in close proximity to the structure,
water was shuttled to the scene by fire department tanker trucks. Fire crews were on
scene throughout the night.
The cause of the fire is unknown at this time. The fire is under investigation by both the Abbotsford Police and AFRS fire investigators.
Ten fire trucks and approximately 40 firefighters battled the blaze. APD, BCAS and BC
Hydro were also on scene. No injuries occurred at this fire.
