Dozens of people have been forced from their homes by a large apartment fire in Surrey, B.C.
The fire broke out in the building, located in Newton at 70 Avenue and 138 Street, around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
Two units were on fire when firefighters arrived and then the blaze had jumped to the roof.
Crews worked throughout the night and 38 firefighters are currently battling flare-ups.
There are no reports of any injuries. Roads in the area are expected to remain closed for many hours.
“The building itself is surrounded by trees, the crews did a really good job to mitigate it from getting outside of the building but it’s been a challenging fire,” Asst. Chief Steve Serbic of the Surrey Fire Service said.
