UPDATE w/PHOTOS: Early-morning fire destroys trailer in Chilliwack

Chilliwack Fire Department called to Sinclair Road where travel trailer fire spread to house

Fire crews were battling a travel trailer fire early Saturday morning in Chilliwack.

The call came in to the Chilliwack Fire Department around 6:30 a.m. on May 15 to Sinclair Road near Blackburn Road where crews arrived on scene to find a trailer completely engulfed in flames.

Chris Gadsden was on his morning drive when he came upon the fire near the Keith Wilson Bridge, so he called 911 to report it. In his photos shared on social media, the trailer is first seen with flames coming out of the roof and later a smouldering heap can be seen after it was burnt to the ground.

The trailer was right next to a house which was also damaged in the fire.
