A service van for a fire prevention company burst into flames on a Vancouver street Monday afternoon.
The Vancouver Fire Department said crews responded to a vehicle fire on Southeast Marine Drive near Knight Street at 4:30 p.m.
They found a vehicle engulfed in flames and managed to quickly contain the blaze. There were no injuries, but the van appears to be a write-off.
The van belonged to Vancouver Fire, which describes itself as “B.C.’s largest, longest-established fire protection, fire safety and commercial security and monitoring company.”
Investigators are looking into what caused the fire, but it is not considered suspicious at this time.
Vancouver Fire Department Assistant Chief Ron Coulson said there was likely some fire prevention equipment in the van at the time of the blaze.
“I’m sure the vehicle itself was on fire, not the fire retardants.”
