Burnaby Fire Dept. crews are battling a fire at Burnaby General Hospital as of late Sunday evening.
At this time, it’s not clear what the extent of the fire is, or where it is centred in the hospital complex located at 3935 Kincaid Street.
A transit security officer with Coast Mountain Bus Company called Global News to notify that Smith Avenue and Kincaid Street are blocked to traffic, as well as Sunset Street.
Shelter buses are reported to be parked near the hospital, to accommodate any patients who may be displaced by the fire.
Motorists are asked to avoid the area to give fire crews room to work.
More to come…
