A three-alarm fire engulfed an East Vancouver warehouse Wednesday evening, sending flames and plumes of smoke into the night sky.

The evening blaze took place inside a warehouse that housed a printing company in the area of Pender and Clark.

The fire started around 10 pm and more than 60 firefighters were called in to battle the blaze, which sent thick plumes of smoke and flames shooting into the sky.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.

During the fire, residents were warned to shut their windows for the night due to the presence of thick smoke.

Residents reported they could see the flames and smoke as far away as Cambie Street and 8th Avenue.

While another resident reported a fairly heavy smell of smoke near 16th and Oak.
