|Nixon Road House Fire||August 8, 2018|
At 11:18pm last night (August 7), firefighters from Chilliwack firehalls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 responded to a fire located in the 7600 block of Nixon Road.
Fire crews arrived on scene to find a fully involved house fire. Firefighting operations were particularly challenging due to the steep, narrow driveway, lack of water supply and a venting propane tank.
Fire crews managed to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent forest and barn. The house was completely destroyed.
Fortunately 2 home occupants had become aware of the fire and had safely evacuated. There were no firefighter injuries.
Fire cause is under investigation by the Chilliwack Fire Department.
