Chilliwack firefighters were able to contain a stubborn garage fire in Sardis Friday, limiting damage to the property.

The fire broke out at around 4 p.m. in a two-storey home in the 6300 block of Reid Road. When fire crews arrived they could see smoke and flames coming from the attached garage.

Firefighters responded from Halls 1, 4 & 6. At the initial stage the fire was stubborn to fight, yet fire crews fought the blaze and limited damage to the interior of the home with no fire damage to neighbouring properties.

Occupants were home at the time of the fire and safely evacuated the residence. The residents are now in the care of Emergency Social Services.

There were no civilian injuries. One firefighter was injured during suppression activities and was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital via BC Ambulance Service with an injury to his hand and was released shortly after.

The cause of the fire appears to be accidental at this time and is still under investigation by the Chilliwack Fire Department.
