Fire after police standoff

Fire broke out at an Abbotsford home after a police standoff Monday.

Police were conducting a follow-up with a female victim of a domestic violence investigation when they discovered the male suspect in the home on Southdale Crescent, CTV News reports.

"Officers ensured the female victim, her 11-year-old child, and the basement suite tenants were safely removed from their home while police contained the residence to arrest the male," AbbyPD said.

An Emergency Response Team and armoured vehicle surrounded the home, and just before 2 p.m., smoke and fire was seen inside a bedroom.

The man was treated for smoke inhalation and is in police custody.
