Abbotsford fire crews dealt with two fires on the same property on two consecutive nights.

The two incidents took place in the 500 block of Townline Road.

The first one was at about 1 a.m. Thursday. When crews from Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service arrived, they found a Jeep ablaze on a flatbed trailer. They were quickly able to knock down the flames, but the vehicle was destroyed.

Firefighters were called to the same property again just after midnight on Friday, and they arrived to find that the semi attached to the flatbed trailer was fully engulfed in flames.

Again, crews quickly put out the fire before it could spread. The Jeep that was destroyed the previous night was still on the trailer.

No further details were yet available.
