Fire not suspicious

A house fire in South Surrey last Wednesday is not considered suspicious.

Surrey Fires Services’ Deputy-Chief Gord Anderson said that while the exact cause of the blaze at 15231 29A Ave. has not been determined, investigators are confident it was not intentionally set.

No one was injured in the early evening fire, which started on a second-floor patio and caused extensive damage to the two-storey home.

A quick-thinking teenager who alerted a man home alone in the house is being credited with averting a much larger disaster.

Anderson said Wesley Siegel, 13, “did a really good thing,” and deserves special recognition for his efforts, Anderson said.

“He certainly helped out in efforts we try to support, which is getting people out.”
