Camperized van fire closes Super Save Gas
A camperized van was destroyed by fire late Wednesday afternoon at the Super Save Gas, 6600 No. 5 Rd.
The fire forced the closure of Westminster Highway to eastbound traffic, creating commuter chaos at the height of the rush hour, as Richmond Fire-Rescue dealt with the blaze.
There was no visible damage to the gas station, but the van's windows were blown out, and firefighters were flooding the older American-made van with water.
No word yet as to the cause of the fire.
According to a tweet from CBC News (@cbcnewsbc): "Witnesses report fireballs."
