A greenhouse fire in east Chilliwack Saturday morning caused extensive damage to a mechanical boiler room, but no damage to the greenhouse itself or the flower stock.

“The fire was spotted by the owner of the property after hearing popping sounds outside,” Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Ullyot said.

There was no one in the greenhouse at the time of the 8 a.m. fire.

The mechanical room, which supplied heat to several greenhouses on the property in the 9700-block McLeod Road, was fully involved when firefighters arrived.

Electrical power to the business and the home was disconnected.

The fire is not considered suspicious. The cause is under investigation by city fire officials and the local BC Safety Authority.
