Quick action by Fire Rescue saves duplex

Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service was called to a report of a bedroom fire in a duplex on Parkview Street shortly after 1 p.m. on Sunday.

When crews arrived, they found smoke coming out the front door and two people still inside. An elderly man in a seated walker had to be helped out of the residence.

Quick action by crews prevented the fire from spreading. One person was treated for smoke inhalation by paramedics at the scene. Emergency social services personnel assisted with three occupants of the duplex.
