According to Vancouver Fire Rescue, 35 firefighters responded to the two-alarm blaze, which began at approximately 1:30 p.m. The fire was centralized on the top floor of the building.

It is unclear whether there were any injuries, and the cause is unknown at this time.

A number of bus routes were affected by road closures in the area.
