A Fire Ripped through a townhouse In Chilliwack B.C on December 8,2016
The Chilliwack firefighters were called out to contain a two-storey townhouse fire on Russell Road in Promontory Thursday morning around 9:30 am.
The fire was so intense, the fire department called for extra resources from neighbouring fire halls.
Along with battling the flames from the fire itself, the weather was working against them with temperatures below zero and wind gusts.
Fortunately, the fantastic work of the Chilliwack fire department enabled them to knock down the blaze within an hour.
At the point of writing this, there has been no indication that the fire spread to additional structures within the complex.
SPECIAL NOTE: with the extreme temperatures and it also affecting families with children, there has been a GoFundMe account set up to receive donations.
The account is called Fire in Timber Ridge created by Tanya Doerksen who lives in the same complex that the fire occurred and will ensure all funds get to the family affected. The goal is $5000 which I’m sure will be exceeded with all your help. So click this link now to help out in any way you can
Thank you for all the help you can muster up.
