A home at the base of North Vancouver’s Grouse Mountain was destroyed in a massive fire early Saturday morning.
The blaze began around 1 a.m. at an old cabin that used to serve as the Bavarian Arms Café on Skyline Drive.
“Huge, huge, huge flames and sparks, so many sparks 200 feet up and it was coming slowly to us,” said one man who lives in the area.
“We couldn’t breathe, we came out and saw it was really cloudy, and we knew there was a fire somewhere… It was scary.”
The entire cabin – which was being used as a family home – was destroyed in the fire.
Firefighters say a number of things made the blaze a challenging one, including the remoteness of the property.
No one was injured and the cause of the fire was not immediately clear.
