A large fire is burning on Mitchell Island — between Vancouver and Richmond — Thursday evening.
Video posted to Twitter show a large blaze on the island, which has already seen two large blazes this year.
One person tweeted that the fire appeared to be at the wrecking yard on the island. “It has cars, tires, gas etc it’s explosion after explosion right now,” they wrote.

Pretty nasty fire on Mitchell Island. Lots of explosions. Neighbours said houses shook in Vancouver. pic.twitter.com/rMGT5uILOu
