Surrey firefighters are combatting a major fire at a medical marijuana grow-op located in the neighbourhood of Port Kells.

The 100-foot long building at 18646 88th Avenue near 189th Street went up in flames at approximately 9 a.m. A huge column of smoke can be seen across the region.

Nobody was inside the barn-like building nor were there any reported injuries. Firefighters and emergency officials have closed off the roads in the immediate area and are working to contain the fire from spreading.

The cause of the fire is not known, but it has been deemed ‘suspicious’ and potentially arson. The operators had a legal license to grow medical marijuana at the building. However, this was also their final day following a dispute with the landlord over lease fees.
