No injuries have been reported after a third-alarm fire tore through a condo high-rise in Vancouver’s West End on Halloween night.
The fire, in an upper floor of a tower in the 1000-block of Beach Avenue near Sunset Beach, sent flames shooting out of one of the upper-floor balconies.
In a tweet, Fire Chief Darrell Reid said the blaze was knocked down quickly, and the cause is still under investigation.
Building residents were being assisted by emergency social services.
