An apartment fire in Burnaby on Balmoral Street has left two families homeless this morning.
Ten fire trucks and 30 crew members responded to a three story, four-unit apartment complex just after 8am.
Assistant Fire Chief David Graystone says when crews arrived, flames were tearing through the window.
“Upstairs is competed destroyed, the downstairs is complete intact but has some water damage. We have a deceased dog, we have four displaced people and the city is coming to deal with that.”
Greystone says the fire is under investigation.
No word on how it started.
