Two children were transported to hospital with minor smoke inhalation after a fire early this morning (Tuesday) in Abbotsford.
When they arrived, they discovered that one unit in the complex was engulfed with smoke.
Crews were able to get the fire under control, but one bedroom of the unit was extensively damaged, and the entire townhouse received serious smoke damage.
Assistant Fire Chief Dave Rivett said there were no working smoke alarms in the residence, and the occupants were awakened by the smell of smoke.
All residents were able to get out of the home, although the two children with smoke inhalation were transported by ambulance to hospital.
The cause is still under investigation.
