Body found following fire at homeless camp in Surrey
Surrey Fire Services fought a fire in a shed at the encampment, located on 97A Avenue and 137A Street, around 2:30 a.m. Once the fire was extinguished, officials found a dead body inside the shed.

The Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit has taken over the investigation and is working with Surrey Fire Services and the BC Coroners Service.

"I said that when 135A was disbanded or when they forced everybody off that street, I said that we would be seeing more dead bodies in school fields and in derelict backyards and sheds and these places that people are finding shelter in the rain when it gets cold", said Shulte.

Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit has taken over the investigation and is working with Surrey Fire Services to figure out the cause of the fire.

"It was a fire in a shed that was located in this vacant lot that was occupied by a homeless, and that after the fire was extinguished they discovered the remains of one person inside that shed", according to RCMP police spokesperson Cpl. Elenore Sturko.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or www.solvecrime.ca.

In 2017, at the height of Surrey's homeless crisis on 135A Street — the so-called Surrey Strip — Erin Schulte says her work veered from serving bowls of soup to the homeless to injecting Narcan to save those same people from overdosing.

Environment Canada says residents who live in the Fraser Canyon, Nicola, and Similkameen regions all need to be aware of potential dangers as a low-pressure system over Washington state will result in widespread showers and isolated thunderstorms for the southwest interior. Total rainfall amounts will be variable across the region, with 10 to 20 mm expected today. Any areas affected by thunderstorms could see locally higher amounts in excess of 25 mm.

“As it appears that many local governments were unaware of the change to consider all cannabis production as farm use, and that consequently the ALC would no longer be considering applications for cannabis production, the amendments have had the effect of creating a 3-month gap in which some forms of cannabis production may have been unregulated in terms of ALC oversight and/or local government land use regulation,” Singh said.
