Vancouver firefighters were deployed to tackle a three-alarm blaze in the city’s West End on Sunday.

The fire was burning on the 15th floor of the 23-storey concrete Pacific Surf apartments at 1275 Pacific St.

Vancouver Fire Chief Darrell Reid said the department’s Rapid Intervention Team was on the scene quickly and able to knock the fire down.

“Strong, tactically sound command + strong firefighting means fire was contained to the 15th floor,” tweeted Reid.

Photos and video posted to social media show flames and thick black smoke coming from the residential tower.

Reid said no one was hurt in the fire, and that the cause was under investigation.
