Fire Breaks Out In Burnaby, Just North Of SFU


After Vancouverites woke up to a hazy-looking sky on Sunday morning due to wildfires across the province, even more smoke filled their views.

According to News 1130, a fire broke out on the north side of Burnaby Mountain around 10 a.m. on Sunday. Emergency crews were quick to rush to the blaze, but residents soon began reporting smoke billowing out of the woods, apparently on a trail close to Simon Fraser University:

While the fire danger rating in Vancouver's Stanley Park was updated to "extreme" this weekend, this is the closest the province's wildfires have come to the city so far this summer.

According to residents nearby, the fire appeared to be extinguished by around 11 a.m.
