A fire that tore through a housing complex on Sunday morning is being classified as suspicious.

At about 3:30 a.m. Monday, fire crews were called to Hunter Hill Housing Complex on 122 Street near 70A Avenue.

They found one of the units unglued in flames. The unit was destroyed and an adjoining unit was damaged.

No one was hurt, as the main unit was unoccupied. Three people in the adjacent unit were displaced.

Surrey Deputy Fire Chief Dan Barnscher said the fire is being classified as suspicious, partly because a source of the fire has not been determined.

It is believed to have started outside the residence.

Police and fire continue to investigate.
