Township firefighters responded to what investigators are now calling a suspicious house fire at a Langley property late Monday night.
“No one was living in the home at the time,” Township deputy fire chief Bruce Ferguson told Langley Advance Times Tuesday morning.
The call to firefighters around midnight was made by someone living in another residence on the property at 26088 56 Ave.
The fire started at the exterior of the home, but was contained.
“The house is not destroyed,” Ferguson confirmed.
