On February 20th, 2019 at around 12:15pm the Chilliwack Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a fire in the 5700 block of Unsworth Rd.
Fire crews from Halls 1, 4 and 6 responded to the scene and upon arrival discovered smoke showing from underneath a double-wide mobile home structure. Fire crews aggressively removed the skirting from around the structure and extinguished the fire before it spread into the interior of the structure. The structure received some fire damage in the crawl space and also received smoke damage inside the structure.

All occupants were able to safely exit the home and are in the care of the Chilliwack Emergency Social Services team.

There were no civilian or firefighter injuries as a result of this fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by fire officials and is believed to be accidental in nature. The Chilliwack Fire Department would like to remind the public to use extreme caution when conducting any hot works such as metal cutting or welding and to ensure this work is carried out a safe distance away from any nearby combustibles.
