The rash of vacant house fires in Chilliwack continues with one on Norrish Avenue Wednesday morning.
As parents were dropping off children at a nearby daycare, Chilliwack firefighters battled the blaze in the boarded up house near the CN Rail tracks shortly after 8 a.m.
At the scene RCMP pushed people back a considerable distance, but a witness said a young woman continued to defy police orders. An officer was heard to tell her she was under arrest and she was put into a police car.
By 9 a.m. crews said the fire was not under control and the roof of the house was completely compromised.
The fire is the third vacant house fire in just a few days.
There was one on Margaret Avenue Sunday and another on Maple Avenue on Monday.
