VIDEO/Photo - Massive Abbotsford house fire, second in six hours

Abbotsford fire crews battled a second major house fire in less than six hours Monday.

An Orchard Drive house burst into flames at 9 p.m. and several large explosions were heard several kilometers away. The plume of dense black smoke could be seen from across Abbotsford and even several reports of smoke seen from Mission.

Earlier Monday afternoon fire crews battled a similar house fire on Dina Place.

There were no reported injuries. Orchard Drive was shut down for several hours while crews battled the blaze.
