North Vancouver fire crews have put out a two-alarm blaze at an apartment complex just before the afternoon rush hour.
North Vancouver City Fire Department says it received several 9-1-1 calls and reports of an explosion at the building at Lonsdale and 26th Ave around 4 p.m.
Fire Chief Dan Pistilli says no one was seriously hurt and everyone evacuated the building.
“BC Ambulance is here. They did take one person to get checked out in the hospital. A little bit of smoke inhalation. No other injuries reported.”
The cause of the fire and extent of the damage are still unclear.
It’s also unknown how many residents may be out of their homes tonight as a result.
