Fire destroys Promontory home

A Chilliwack family was forced from its home Saturday after flames swept through their Promontory house.

A home on Grove Avenue in Promontory was destroyed by fire Saturday afternoon.

A Chilliwack family was forced from its home Saturday after flames swept through their Promontory house.

No one was injured in the blaze. However the family, which was renting the property, had no tenant insurance.

According to the Chilliwack fire department, a neighbour working in their yard, noticed light smoke coming from the exterior west side of the home and quickly called 911.

Firefighters responded from Halls 1 and 4 and on arrival, reported seeing smoke and flame on the west side of the exterior of a two story residential home. Fire crews setup a defensive attack and quickly brought the fire under control.

The home suffered fire damage to the west side exterior and roof structure. Fire also extended to the interior causing damage to a portion of the home.

The residents were home at the time of the fire, were able to safely evacuate and are currently in the care of Emergency Social Services. There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by Fire Department officials.
