On July 11, 2018 at approximately 0300am the Chilliwack Fire Department was dispatched to a
reported residential structure fire located in the 45000 block of Safflower Crescent.
Firefighters responded from Halls 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6, and on arrival, reported seeing heavy smoke
and flames venting from 2 single family homes, 2 garages, and 1 carriage home. Occupants were
at home at the time of the fire. Due to the intense fire and structural damage to multiple
occupancies firefighters set up a defensive fire attack, and were able to stop the fire from
spreading to adjacent properties.
All 5 structures involved when fire crews arrived suffered major fire and smoke damage to the
interior and exterior of the structures, while 11 more structures suffered minor heat damage
due to radiant heat.
There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.
This fire is under investigation by the Chilliwack Fire Department and RCMP.
If anyone has any information about this fire, they are asked to call the RCMP at 604-792-4611
or anonymously through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or
