Crews are currently battling a residential fire in Langley City at the corner 204th Street and 54 Ave.
A vehicle is said to have caught fire in the building’s parkade.
Residents are currently evacuating while police and multiple firefighting apparatuses are on scene.
Township crews have been called in to assist.
Pat White’s parents reside in the building and she said she heard loud popping noises while passing by.
“I could smell rubber and smoke, and then I came over here and everything in the parkade was on fire – right beneath my parents’ patio,” White recounted.
Another resident, Bruce A. Lee, said his vehicle was parked next to the one that had caught fire.
“I ran out, grabbed my dog, and my bag – forgot my keys – then I knocked on all the doors on my hall,” Lee told the Langley Advance Times. “I saw my van has no more windows and all of the plastic has melted off of it, so I guess my van is a right-off as well.”
