Firefighters quickly put out a house fire in west Abbotsford Wednesday afternoon after a reported explosion in a piece of machinery set a nearby home alight.
Fire broke out in the Brookside Avenue home around 3 p.m.
The owner of the home said a neighbour heard a loud bang from piece of farm equipment, which then caught fire. The flames spread to a house nearby and smoke could be seen coming from the home.
Fire crews were able to put out the flames shortly after arriving on scene. No one was reported injured.
