Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service was called to a house fire on Bevan Crescent shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday.

The fire initially appeared to be centered in a  business called N & K Alterations at 2357 Bevan Crescent. Three career crews and two auxiliary halls, totaling 30 firefighters, were called out to battle the blaze.

The owners were not home at the time fire crews arrived, but returned shortly after.

Fire crews were able to make an attack on the fire, but the structure and contents received extensive fire, smoke and water damage. Firefighters were also able to stop the fire from spreading to neighbouring houses. One home did receive some damage from radiant heat melting vinyl siding.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
