SURREY, B.C. - Two people have died in a house fire in B.C.'s Lower Mainland.

Surrey Fire Service assistant chief Steve Serbic says crews were called just after 4:30 a.m.

An elderly man and woman were pulled from the home a short time later.

The blaze destroyed the upper floor of the house in Surrey's northwest corner.

Serbic says crews had a difficult time reaching the fire, because the property was surrounded by debris and there was more inside the home.

A cause has not yet been determined. (News 1130)
