A barn behind a home at Golden Ears Way and 210th Street was destroyed by an early-morning fire on Monday.
The charred skeleton of the barn was still smoldering when firefighters called in an excavator to level the outbuilding at about 9:30 a.m. The call came in to 911 at 1:42 a.m.
No one was hurt in the blaze, according to Maple Ridge fire chief Dane Spence
“It’s an outbuilding... It was fully involved when firefighters arrived. The long, long driveway access to the building itself was difficult,” Spence said.
“We have no idea of the origin at this time. We have a machine coming to help with the overhaul, an excavator... everything has collapsed on itself so we need the machine to remove parts of the building to assist with the investigation and extinguish the fire.”
