"This is Rachel Nixon. I'm calling on behalf of the NowPublic team about the Vancouver fires. It's Monday, the 14th of July. As previously reported on NowPublic there are severe power outages in Downtown Vancouver because of electrical fires. The BC Hydro website is talking about more than 1,000 clients affected around the Waterfront area of Vancouver, in Gastown and also the Seymour Street area. I went down the street and saw smoke billowing from one hole on Richards Street where police had cordoned it off and were re-directing traffic. BC Hydro says it could be a few hours before the power comes back on. This is Rachel Nixon reporting for NowPublic."
