Burnaby firefighters had a busy end to the weekend, knocking down two house fires.
The fire department was first called to 6309 Gordon Ave. at 9:35 p.m. on Sunday.
On arrival, crews found flames and heavy smoke coming from a pickup truck parked near the garage of a two-storey single family home, according to assistant fire Chief Dave Younger.
The blaze had also spread into the garage but was stopped there, he said.
One person was taken to hospital by ambulance, according to BC Emergency Health Services.
Firefighters were called to a second fire less than four hours later, at 1:40 a.m. Monday, at a two-storey triplex with a basement at 5449 Barker Ave.
When crews arrived, they found flames and heavy smoke coming from a basement window.
All residents had been evacuated before the firefighters arrived, according to Younger, and crews attacked the blaze with hoses from the outside.
They were able to contain the fire to a single unit, he said.
