Port Metro Vancouver Fire Safety Risk Has Been Cleared

Port Metro Vancouver in combination with Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services has successfully extinguished the fire and there is no further risk to the public.

Vancouver Fire & Rescue Services has given the all clear designation and will release fire crews when fire protection services are no longer needed.

The chemical fire started earlier this week on Wednesday and burned for approximately 24 hours. The fire led to a Hazmat response, which forced the closure of the Port and hundreds of people to evacuate.

Investigators will now start their work to see what ignited the chemical fire.
