Fire crews in Vancouver have managed to put out the last of a morning camper van fire in the area of Mainland and Davie Street in Yaletown.

Information Officer Jonathan Gormick says no one was injured, and no one was inside the vehicle at the time.

“Our fire investigator is on scene, and collecting evidence at this time, and we should have a cause at some point today.”

Officials note that the area will likely be tied up for the next bit as investigators comb through the scene to determine the cause.

The Ford Econoline was completely destroyed, the fire ripping through the roof of the van.

Even though smoked has wafted over downtown Vancouver the burning smell is still prevalent.
