28 Ave Structure Fire Update

Jan 28, 2016

At approximately 11:26 PM last night, crews were dispatched to a fully involved barn fire at 6125 28 Ave. Upon arrival, the Battalion Chief was approached by a neighbour who was concerned that there might be horses inside the barns. 

Crews quickly checked areas of concern and determined that no animals were inside. Crews fought the fire in defensive mode (exterior only) as the roof of the structure collapsed shortly after their arrival. Once first responding crews knocked down the fire, a call out crew was brought to the scene to deal with hot spots beneath the collapsed roof. The callout crew could be on scene for most of the morning to ensure complete extinguishment.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time. Fire Investigators are on scene.
