A handful of residents in East Vancouver are still trying to figure out where to go after a fire engulfed a number of suites of an apartment building earlier this afternoon.
Crews responded to calls of a second-alarm fire at Garden Drive and Triumph Street just before 2:30.
Vancouver Fire Assistant Chief Rob Renning:
“It appears to be started on the patio, which is like a rooftop deck, and it caused damage to the four penthouse units, as well as water damage to seven other suites below that.”
Renning says at this point in the investigation, the fire does not appear suspicious.
“They’re still looking at other possibilities at this time. It’s still undetermined at this time but not considered suspicious.”
No one was hurt in the blaze.
