At least two New Westminster families will be displaced after a housing complex on McBride and 10th caught fire this morning.
Resident James Campbell says the alarms went off just after 4:00 am.
“I smelled the smoke and made sure I got my daughter and my wife out, and then we went outside to make sure everyone else was awake, and out. And everybody got out – as far as I know – I didn’t hear about anybody not getting out – everybody got out safe, and there’s gonna be a couple of families displaced.”
No word yet as to what caused the fire.
Campbell and his family left the area because of the smoke.
He says the last he heard, fire crews had the blaze knocked down.
