One man died in a Langley house fire late Saturday afternoon, June 13, and at least one other person remains unaccounted for.

Langley deputy fire chief Bruce Ferguson told the Langley Advance Times police have been called in to investigate what is considered a suspicious death.

Members of the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation Team are on scene.

Just before 6 p.m. fire crews were called to a fully involved house fire in the 19600 block of Wakefield Dr. in the Willowbrook area.

One witness said a person was pulled from the house by RCMP and CPR was being performed on the front lawn.

BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) reported receiving a call from the Township of Langley Fire Department at 5:45 pm on June 13 about a structure fire near 68th Avenue and 197th Street in Langley.

Several ambulances responded and treated one person on scene for minor injuries.

No one was transported to hospital.

The fire spread to a neighbouring house as firefighters worked to control the blaze that went through the roof.
