Fire took place at Pho Star Restaurant, located at 10204 SE Mill Plain Blvd.

Shortly after 9 p.m. Monday (Aug. 1) night the Vancouver Fire Department (VFD) was dispatched to Mill Plain Blvd. and 102nd Ave. for a report of a vegetation fire with nearby exposures. 

The first engine arrived within minutes and found light smoke from the exterior of the building, which houses the Pho Star Restaurant, located at 10204 SE Mill Plain Blvd. Firefighters used chainsaws and hand tools to open the exterior wall and they utilized a thermal imaging camera to locate hot spots.

A second VFD engine arrived to provide manpower and ventilate the interior of the restaurant as there was light smoke within the structure. Crews checked for further fire extension within the interior walls and ceiling. Only two fire engines were required for this incident. 

There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is being investigated by the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office.
