To give you an idea how stubborn this van fire in Vancouver, BC was on Monday, the image below was taken from the video by NepaliUnited above more than 15 minutes after firefighters began putting water and foam on the burning vehicle. Two men from the van were seriously burned and fled the scene after a collision with another vehicle sent the van into the wall and onto the home’s front yard. Police initially said the fire inside the van was being fueled by chemicals and that the vehicle was a rolling meth lab. A follow-up statement by police indicates there were no chemicals and this was not a meth lab. It turns out there were containers of gasoline inside the back of the van.
VPD spokesman Const. Brian Montague said two men aged 19 and 25, both residents of Coquitlam, eventually walked into Eagle Ridge Hospital with serious burns to their upper body, arms, hands, head and face.
Meanwhile, police continue to investigate the collision that happened around 3:15 p.m. when a white panel van crashed into a concrete wall at Oak Street near 53rd.
Montague said that it initially appeared that equipment or chemicals for a meth lab were in the van.
However, he said later that gasoline, not chemicals or a meth lab, were involved in the fire and explosions that destroyed the van.
