A fire that tore through part of a building under construction in Burnaby’s Brentwood neighbourhood on Monday night took firefighters close to four-and-a-half hours to extinguish.

The fire took place in “a [building construction crew’s] storage locker/lunchroom area” in the parkade on the P4 level, Burnaby’s Acting Asst. Fire Chief Barry Mawhinney told Daily Hive.

Crews were called to the scene at 7:45 pm, and the “last truck pulled away” at 12:07 pm, Mawhinney furthered.

No one was hurt in the blaze, and as of Tuesday morning, the cause of the fire had not yet been determined.
