If you’re smelling smoke around Vancouver tonight, this is why.

Just after 11 pm on Sunday night, Twitter was abuzz with the smell of smoke in the air – but the cause was unknown.

Now it looks like we’ve found out where it’s coming from.

Reports online suggest the fire was near the rooftop of a building on Quebec Street near Terminal (close to Main Street-Science World SkyTrain Station), though officials have yet to confirm this.

Reactions to smelling the smoke are coming from all around Metro Vancouver, including the North Shore, Burnaby, and Richmond.

More to come as this develops…
