Coquitlam Fire crews have knocked down a small fire at a home in the 1600-block of Pinetree Way.
Assistant Chief Gary Mulligan with Coquitlam Fire and Rescue says it started in a washer and dryer room.
“It’s not a large fire, but it’s contained to the room. We’ve got our fire prevention division en route to investigate.”
He says six people are currently staying with neighbors.
“We have our victim’s services, they’ve been asked to look after the families and our fire prevention will also touch bases with them.”
He says it’s too early to tell if they will be able to return home tonight.
