Fire overnight in Maple Ridge industrial park

Happened about 1 a.m. near the Fraser River

A woman has been treated for smoke inhalation and was, or is, to be released from hospital after a fire early Friday in the Albion Industrial Park in Maple Ridge.

The fire took place in the 23000-block of Fisherman Road, just off MacKay Avenue just after 1 a.m.

Ridge Meadows RCMP however remain on scene at the location, to secure the site and so they can continue their investigation.

“Cause is unknown at this time, until members, assisted with the fire department, can conduct an investigation,” said Sgt. Brenda Gresiuk. It’s too early to determine the cause of the fire, she added.

“Safety is the top priority to ensure that it’s safe for members, fire, to go in to further investigate.”

Maple Ridge assistant fire chief Doug Armour said a large outbuilding was fully engulfed in flames when 32 firefighters arrived. The building burned down but the rain helped contain the fire.
