UPDATE: Too early to tell if Surrey and Langley truck fires linked, police say

Surrey RCMP are calling Cloverdale fire ‘suspicious’

SURREY —After a truck crashed into a Surrey business early Wednesday morning, both it and the building caught fire.

It happened around 3 a.m. at 18525 53rd Ave. in Cloverdale. Police say no driver was on scene when they arrived.

Surrey RCMP are calling it “suspicious.”

A witness at the scene said emergency crews arrived to find the fire spreading to the inside of the business, but firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze.

At nearly the exact same time there was a similar incident involving a truck driving into a business in the 20300-block of Langley Bypass and it, too, caught on fire.

It’s too early to tell if the two incidents are linked, police say.
