The Chilliwack Fire Department was dealing with the second large fire at an industrial site of the day Monday evening.

The blaze struck after 8 p.m. and crews were on the scene for several hours attempting to put out the large fire in the warehouse building off Aitken Road.

Early reports said the building contained a large marijuana grow operation.

This fire came just hours after a fire at a truck repair shop on Industrial Way shortly after 3 p.m.
