One person was treated at the scene for possible smoke inhalation.
A single resident in a house fire was treated at the scene by units from the Vancouver Fire Department (VFD) Tuesday.
At about 12:15 p.m. Tuesday (May 11), Vancouver fire units were dispatched to the report of a structure fire at 9312 NE 11st street in the French Glen section of central Vancouver.
The first engine arrived approximately four minutes after dispatch and reported fire showing from a bedroom window at the rear of a single-story house. A hose line was stretched to the rear of the house and the fire was effectively attacked from the outside.
Once additional units arrived, a second hose line was taken into the house to put out all remaining fire. It took 25 firefighters approximately 10 minutes to extinguish the blaze. One person was treated at the scene for possible smoke inhalation.
Units remained on scene for an hour putting out hot spots and performing salvage and overhaul operations. One person was displaced as a result of the fire. This fire is being investigated by the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office.
The Vancouver Fire Department would like to remind people if there’s a fire — get out and stay out. Never go back into a burning building.
