RICHMOND (NEWS 1130) – There was smoke coming out of the Canada Post building at the YVR Airport this afternoon.

YVR says there is no impact on operations at the airport, as the smoke was ground side. The fire appeared to be coming from a cab of a semi truck and the flames appear to be out.


A man driving by the fire spoke with NEWS 1130 about what he saw.

“It just started as I was driving on this road parallel, on the other side of the runway,” Aymin Ismail says. “I kind of saw the first initial little bit. It’s going to be smoking out of the whole airport.”

No other details are available but photos of the smoke were being shared on social media.
