Smoke from a fire rises at the Port Metro Vancouver
Smoke from a fire rises at the Port Metro Vancouver, British Columbia March 4, 2015. A container terminal at Canada’s largest port was evacuated on Wednesday after a fire broke out amid shipping containers piled up in a yard east of Vancouver’s downtown core. A Port Metro Vancouver spokesman said authorities were working to identify what exactly was burning at the Centerm container terminal, one of four container terminals in Metro Vancouver. Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services said on Twitter that firefighters were investigating a “Hazmat incident” and that they had asked for the port to be evacuated.
