Air ambulance called to fire at Abbotsford apartment building

Paramedics treat one patient at scene on Saturday; medevac takes none to hospital

An air ambulance was called in after emergency crews responded to a structure fire at an Abbotsford apartment building late afternoon on Feb. 12.

Abbotsford Police confirmed they helped assist Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service and BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS) with the call by blocking off George Ferguson Way in both directions for a period of time.

A BCEHS spokesperson said just after 4 p.m., two ground units and a medevac were sent in response to the fire, with the latter landing at a nearby school field.

One patient was treated on scene, but none were transported to hospital, the spokesperson said.

Social media posts with photos of the incident said the apartment building was located between Gladys and Campbell avenues.

The News has reached out to Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service for more details.
