On the evening of February 15, 2016, fire crews responded to a tent fire in the protest homeless camp on Gladys Avenue. The cause of the fire is still unknown, and the Abbotsford Fire Department was unable to share any information regarding the fire.

Following a long history of problems between the City of Abbotsford and the homeless camp, the City served the occupants of the camp an eviction notice requiring them to be out by Wednesday, February 10. However, several occupants still remained at the site of the camp past the eviction deadline.
