A North Vancouver man is in hospital with burns after a house fire sent a large plume of black smoke into the air that could be seen in many parts of the region.
The man, whose identity has not been made public, was operating a propane barbecue when the fire erupted, RCMP said.
His condition is not known.
The home, located in the 4000-block of Norwood Avenue, was extensively damaged
