VIDEO: Overnight fire guts East Vancouver warehouse

At its peak, the blaze saw 60 firefighters on scene

A large overnight fire has left a Vancouver print shop destroyed.

At its peak, the three-alarm fire at a warehouse in the 1400 block of Pender Street saw 60 firefighters battle the blaze, which was reported just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.

When crews arrived, witnesses said the one-story building, which houses Metropolitan Fine Printers, had smoke billowing out of it, with a well-advanced fire inside.

The cause of the flames is still under investigation.
