Several people had to evacuate their homes due to an early morning fire at an Aldergrove forest products company. Langley Township fire crews were at a structure fire in the 26900 block of Old Yale Road in Aldergrove all night. The fire broke out overnight at Elykwood Forest Products and Manufacturing. The RCMP was contacted about the fire at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday, shortly after the Township Fire Department was dispatched, said Langley RCMP Sgt. Barry Beales. Additional fire halls were called out just after 9 a.m. to help personnel already on scene. The fire department and RCMP will be doing investigations. “But now we’re just waiting for it to cool down to get a fire investigator on site,” he said. Old Yale Road was blocked off in the area for several hours Wednesday.
