Update: Vancouver Fire Chief Darrell Reid has shared on social media that the condo fire has been quickly put out.
Fire crews were able to contain the blaze to the 15th floor.
There have been no recorded injuries at this point in time and the cause of the fire is now under investigation.
Pls join me in recognizing @VanFireRescue crews for their fast knock down of this high rise fire.
Strong, tactically sound command + strong firefighting means fire was contained to the 15th floor.
