West Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Multiple homes along West Vancouver’s wealthy Bellevue Avenue have gone up in flames. According to CBC, investigators believe the initial fire was set deliberately after finding a gas canister at the scene. Crews arrived at the first home shortly after 4:00 am and extinguished that fire around 10:00 am, however flames quickly spread to a neighbouring home. Global BC reported that it appeared the homeowners of the initial house were away, while two occupants from the second home were sent to hospital. Both homes were severely damaged. Global noted that crews from three departments were called to help, including a fire boat. Arson is suspected.
