A big fire in Burnaby has left residents of a 21-unit apartment building near Boundary Road and Canada Way homeless.
“The day shift arrived to a heavy fire showing from the top floor of a 4-storey, wood-frame apartment.”
When fire crews arrived in the late afternoon, flames were shooting from the top floor of the building.
41 firefighters and 13 pieces of equipment were eventually needed to extinguish the 3-alarm blaze.
Assistant Fire Chief Rick Weir….
“There was no injuries to residents. There was 1 injury to a firefighter who rolled his ankle and was transported to Burnaby Hospital.”
Fire department and police investigators will go thru the building later this morning, but at this stage he says the cause is not suspicious.
