Surrey fire crews douse flames amid vehicle scrap heap

Surrey fire crews douse flames amid vehicle scrap heap Smoke could be seen from kilometres away as a large fire broke out Saturday night amid a pile of old cars near Ken's Auto Recyclers on Scott Road near Old Yale Road. The blaze soon spread to some nearby trees. Surrey fire crews were called out at about 9:27 p.m., and had largely put out the fire by about 11 p.m., with the exception of some hot spots. Surrey Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Reo Jerome tells Global News nobody was hurt, but one of the neighbours did report seeing someone standing on top of the pile of cars at the spot where they were burning.

When he isn’t directing a life-saving fire department in Vancouver, chief Darrell Reid is apparently shooting breathtaking videos of nature on the Sunshine Coast.

The Vancouver fire chief posted this video of a bald eagle snatching a fish to his Twitter account Sunday..

“Pretty amazing to see this in person,” Reid wrote. “A bald eagle dives to get a fish —  hits it but doesn’t catch it on the first pass — then turns on a dime to catch it.”

Firefighters rescue woman as blaze destroys 4 townhouse units in northeast Edmonton.
One woman had to be rescued by firefighters as fire destroyed four units in a north Edmonton townhouse complex Wednesday morning. Twenty-four fire trucks were called to the fire at 6075 Schonsee Way around 9:30 a.m., said district fire chief Martin Prins. "Crews did rescue one woman from the second floor on arrival," he said. "They rescued her with a ground ladder and she wasn't injured, did not go to the hospital." Units 53 through 56 in the same four-plex had "extensive damage" but the fire was contained to the one building, Prins said.
