Langley Township firefighters dealt with a pair of fires early in the week, one of which destroyed a garage.
The first fire broke out around 6: 25 p.m. Monday in the 10000 block of Allard Crescent near Fort Langley, said assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson.
When fire crews arrived, they found a workshop and garage in flames. The building was almost completely consumed, but no one was injured.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it does not appear to be arson, Ferguson said.
On Tuesday night, crews were called out to a fire caused by spontaneous combustion.
The residents of a home in the 500 block of 232nd Street had been working with linseed oil earlier in the day.
Just after 11 p.m., a rag soaked in the oil, and left on a woodpile outside the house, spontaneously burst into flames.
The fire began creeping up from the woodpile, up the side of the home and into the wooden soffits under the eaves, Ferguson said.
The homeowners were able to douse the fire before the firefighters even arrived.
They used a thermal imager to search for hot spots and helped vent smoke from the house.
No one was injured in the incident.
