Fire damages Agassiz home

Residential blaze on Highway 9 called suspicious by investigators

The Agassiz Fire Department responded to a confirmed structure fire early Monday morning on Highway 9 south of Morrow Road and MacKay Crescent.

Shortly past 3 a.m. crews arrived on scene to flames already coming through the roof of the residential building.

After fighting the blaze, firefighters started breaking the scene down at 8 a.m. and reopened the highway.

No one was hurt during the fire.

The fire was discovered because a neighbour heard the smoke alarms in the burning house, saw smoke and flames and called 911.

The fire is deemed suspicious and is under investigation by the RCMP.

Agassiz fire department and Agassiz RCMP are asking if anyone saw anything or anyone around the area of 1593 Highway 9 between the hours of 12 a.m. to 3 a.m. in the morning to contact those authorities.
