“There was some type of renovation or construction work going on in one of the units. We’re not exactly sure what the extent of the damage is at this point.”

Warner says the building consists of 18 units and he believes about 30 people live there.

“We have victims services from RCMP and the city’s emergency social services here to work with the occupants, if they’re going to be displaced.”

According to Warner, BC Ambulance treated some residents at the scene. Fire Rescue will continue its investigation into what triggered the alarm.
