A Coast Guard training session near Vancouver Airport that went wrong sparked fire fears earlier today.
The Coast Guard was training on fire and smoke containment when the equipment malfunctioned.
The problem? No one was informed, including Richmond Fire, who were unaware training was taking place.
The fire department received multiple calls, and YVR received multiple tweets from concerned residents.
Richmond fire says they spoke to the Coast Guard and asked to be kept in the loop from now on.
