There are no reports of any injuries. Roads in the area are expected to remain closed for many hours.
“The building itself is surrounded by trees, the crews did a really good job to mitigate it from getting outside of the building but it’s been a challenging fire,” Asst. Chief Steve Serbic of the Surrey Fire Service said.
