Langley Drug Section has assumed conduct of the investigation into the explosion / fire in Aldergrove early this morning.

Police and fire attended the townhouse complex in the 27100 block of 31 A Avenue shortly after midnight for the reported explosion. Three residences were still on fire on arrival and two men were found in the middle garage suffering from severe burns. One of the men was transported by air and the other by ground ambulance. No other injuries were reported.

Langley Client Support & Victim Services attended to provide support and assistance to the families from all three residences displaced by the fire.

Currently, police wait for a structural engineer to attend and determine if entry onto the site is safe. The two neighbouring units were both heavily damaged by the fire.

Police believe there may have been a butane extraction site established in the center garage and will continue their investigation in this regard.
