Delta Fire Chief Dave Wood said crews were able to knock the fire down, and contain it to a warehouse complex attached to the greenhouse.

At the peak of the fire, about 30 firefighters were on scene, he added.

The facility was operated by BC Tweed, a cannabis grower that shut down operations in March, Wood confirmed.

A massive plume of black smoke, described by some on social media as a “mushroom cloud” could be seen from several kilometres away.
