Early morning blaze guts Chilliwack restaurant

The fire erupted north of the overpass closing one lane of Yale Road

Early reports of a pre-dawn fire in Chilliwack suggest that a Yale Road restaurant near downtown has been gutted by flames.

Chilliwack Fire Department and RCMP were on-scene since the early hours of Friday (Jan. 22) to quell the blaze and secure the scene.

Part of Yale Road was closed north of the overpass so motorists might want to avoid the area.

More to come.
