The first daylight hours are breaking over what’s left of several burnt out homes at a co-op complex in Pitt Meadows.
The blaze has been replaced with the sound of water now dripping off the charred remains.
The fire crews have put out the flames that have now seen eight families homeless.
One resident, Marjorie, whose was home was untouched, says she thinks the residents may be moving out as well.
“They’ll be afraid of anything else happening, you know how people with children get a little touchy. They’ll be looking for Harris Road Co-op: next – to move out of here.”
The fire began around 7:00 on Sunday night.
One resident – Leslie Farkus – who lives in the same complex – says the fire started because of his truck.
“And I’ve seen this glow before, many years ago, an orange glow. Right away I thought “Oh no”, and I open the front door and my truck, there was flames shooting out both windows because I leave me windows open.”
