VIDEO: Raging fire destroys Abbotsford home

Blaze broke out around 4 a.m. Wednesday on Martens Street

A blaze destroyed a south Abbotsford home early this morning.

Crews were called to Martens Street, near the corner of Oakridge Crescent, at 3:48 a.m. The front of the home was in flames when crews arrived, but the occupants had escaped and nobody was hurt.

The fire was spreading through the first and second floors of the home and to several vehicles on the property. Fire crews kept the fire from spreading to adjacent buildings and structures before eventually putting it out. The home was badly damaged throughout.

Roughly 35 firefighters in 10 units fought the blaze and were joined by Abbotsford Police Department officers, BC Hydro, Fortis BC and B.C. Ambulance crews.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
