Port Metro Vancouver Chemical Fire

Posted 5:00 PM, March 4, 2015

At approximately 1:40 PM today, a chemical fire started in a container at Port Metro Vancouver Centerm Container Terminal facility. As of approximately 3:50 PM, this is being described as a 4th alarm fire, as it includes the Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services Hazardous Materials Team. Because the smoke plume has now moved into areas of the City of Burnaby, the City of Burnaby has now activated its Emergency Operation Centre to ensure citizen and property protection.

Vancouver Coastal Health recommends that if you are in an area in which you can smell or see smoke, that you should cover your mouth and nose with a wet cloth. If you are in a building, you should keep the windows closed.
