A fiery accident has closed the Burrard Bridge in both directions.
There were reports of an explosion just after 1 am early Tuesday morning, and multiple social media accounts showed fire on the bridge.

Translink buses are currently being rerouted off of the bridge, and there is no estimate as to when it will reopen.
More to come.
