Firetrucks @ the Old safeway

Looks like a bit of a fire at the Old Safeway site on Vic and 10th. Several ambulances, firetrucks and police vehicles on scene.

No stream

Star FM - firefighters say they have everything under control now. Good pics but can't get the stream.

Old Safeway/ New Police Station

it would be helpful I am sure if people stayed away from the area in order for the fire guys to do their job.

Actually Oryx, this is in my neighbourhood so I can see it pretty well from my yard.. Aside from regular rush hour traffic, I didn't see anyone getting in their way

Will wait for something official but but going by the discussion going on in the background it doesn't sound like it was anything overly serious. Hopefully nobody was hurt and that construction won't be set back. I've added a couple more pictures to the right-hand column.
