A fire broke out in Vancouver’s West End neighbourhood overnight, and fire crews were able to douse the flames before it spread.
The blaze engulfed a construction trailer sitting in a vacant lot at on Beach Avenue. Around 1:30 am bright orange flames could be seen from neighbouring apartment buildings, and the fire sent plenty of smoke into the air.

Vancouver Fire Rescue Services characterized it as a “fully involved” structure fire. Luckily, firefighters were able to contain it so it didn’t spread to any nearby residential buildings.
