A 3 alarm blaze has left one Burnaby family homeless.
Meike Vareschi says she was out with her family when she found out her house, where she also runs a business was up in flames.
“We left the house at 12:00 and apparently at 12:30 the the fire started and we got a phone call and we got a phone call when we were out at the North Shore. We were mountain biking and a friend called us saying our house was on fire and we have to come back”
Vareschi says she and her family are all safe, except for their cat who they haven’t been able to locate.
Firefighters continue to battle the blaze that seems to have started at the back of the house.
