Halloween fireworks are considered the likely culprit in an early morning Aldergrove fire.
Around 12:45 a.m. on Sunday morning, Nov. 1, Township of Langley crews responded to reports of a possible house fire in the 27300 block of 34th Ave in Aldergrove.
Crews from Aldergrove, Murrayville and Otter fire halls arrived to find a row of cedar hedges on fire right beside a house.
Fire fighters quickly extinguished the blaze and soaked down the area.
It was reportedly one of several calls concerning fireworks-triggered minor fires in trees and dumpsters on Halloween night that kept Langley fire crews busy throughout the night.
“It was busier than normal,” said Bruce Ferguson, Township deputy fire chief.
But Ferguson noted most calls were minor in nature.
Langley RCMP said they did not receive any reports of gatherings on Halloween and the majority of calls were related to reports of fireworks.
