Chilliwack firefighters break through a fence in order to access a fire last Thursday.

 

n explosion late Thursday morning in an old semi trailer parked under the Yale Road overpass, shook the neighbourhood, sending up a thick black plume of smoke.

 

When Chilliwack firefighters arrived on the scene, the fire had spread, so while a crew went on the attack on the west side, another chopped their way through the other side to gain access.

 

RCMP blocked off the MJD parking lot as crews dragged out hoses.

 

It's not known what the cause of the blast was. There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians in nearby offices.
