Smoke could be seen billowing out of Frenchies Diner and a plume of smoke could be seen from kilometres away.
The fire impacted traffic and drivers were being asked to avoid the area.
Main Street from East 6th Ave. to East 12th Ave. is blocked to traffic along with East Broadway from Brunswick St. to Quebec St., Vancouver police said. Police said Thursday afternoon that they expect traffic to be disrupted for a few hours.
