Fire trucks are on the scene, as there is smoke in some bushes where the line is now down. That area of 93 Avenue is currently blocked off from traffic. B.C. Hydro is on location, and currently estimates power will be out until 1 p.m.
Fire trucks have also attended to the Quality Inn, where officials say the power outage affected the air control motors on the roof of the hotel, possibly starting a fire. The building was evacuated as there was smoke on the second and sixth floor, but guests and staff have since been allowed to return inside.
We will continue to update as we learn more.
