FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Fire Department was busy Sunday night responding to two different vehicle fires at almost the same time.

Just before 10 p.m., crews were called to a vehicle fire on 114a avenue near 100 street. Eyewitnesses say a small explosion was heard after the fire started. The fire quickly spread to a nearby parked car.

At almost the same time, the Fort St. John Fire Department was also called to a vehicle fire at an apartment building on 86 street near the Best Western Hotel. A photo of the second fire shows the vehicle was located in the parking lot of an apartment building near 86 street and 85 avenue.
