On Wednesday, July 19, 2023, a devastating fire at Devonshire Court Housing Co-operative in Maple Ridge. The two top floor units at the three-storey apartment building were badly damaged by fire. The fire destroyed 12 homes of the co-op’s 47 homes. Other units were damaged by smoke and water. The cause of the fire has not yet been reported.
Thankfully everyone made it out safely. However, residents speculate that there could be a lengthy period of time before they are able to return home. Displaced members are currently staying in a hotel, but urgently need to find new longer-term accommodations while their homes are restored. Ideally the housing will be located near the Maple Ridge area.
