Car fires in downtown Vancouver are threatening The Bay department store on Georgia Street near Granville as flames rise, smoke goes even higher and an awning hangs dangerously close to it all.
This photo of the situation via Gary Mason, a Globe & Mail reporter, shows the situation.
And that's before it got serious and caught that awning you can see above the flames. It keeps growing. Across the street, people are walking around and looting at the London Drugs. It is out of control.
If you're unfamiliar with the area, here's what the street looks like. The Hudson Bay store is on the left, and the London Drugs is on the right. That area is a madhouse on Wednesday night and it doesn't look as though the police are in the area.
