Thick black smoke billowed above Richmond, B.C., after a fire broke out in the north of the city Thursday evening. 

Richmond Fire-Rescue said crews attended an industrial building near the River Rock Casino Resort at around 9 p.m. PT.

“[Firefighters] arrived to see heavy smoke and flames coming out of the building,” said Grant Wyenberg, assistant deputy chief of operations with Richmond Fire-Rescue.

“They got water on it quite quickly and knocked down the fire quite quickly, but there was some extension onto the trestle bridge just to the north of there,” said Wyenberg.
