Just after 5 p.m., a speed boat caught fire off the coast of Vancouver’s Wreck Beach.
Fire crews responded to the incident and managed to rescue the passengers safely.
“We just saw a ball of fire and heard an explosion,” one reader told Vancity Buzz.
It’s currently unknown as to what the cause of the fire is.
More to come…
