(Video) A section of this Burnaby highway was blocked due to fire

Drivers were being asked to avoid a section of Burnaby highway due to a fire Sunday afternoon.

A witness told the Burnaby NOW that as of 4:30 p.m., parts of Barnet highway were closed to traffic heading eastbound, especially at Ridge.

There were also reportedly delays heading westbound as well.

Burnaby firefighters are on scene, the witness said, fighting flames at the intersection where the Harry Jerome sports complex is located.

A Twitter video (posted below) shows fire trucks in a parking lot.

This is on the north side of Burnaby Mountain, a heavily wooded area.
