Timelapse Footage Shows Smoke From Landfill Fire Blanketing Vancouver

Timelapse footage recorded in Vancouver, British Columbia, shows thick smoke from a three-alarm landfill fire blanketing the area on the morning of September 10.

Earlier that morning, Vancouver Fire said they were fighting a blaze at Ontario Street and the Fraser River, which caused hazy conditions in the area.

Jeevan Padamuttum, who recorded the dramatic footage, told Storyful the video was filmed from his apartment in southern Vancouver. In the footage, an impressive layer of smoke can be seen approaching and flooding the skyline.

Padamuttum uploaded the footage to Twitter, and told Storyful that he was “stunned by the smoke.” Credit: Jeevan Padamuttum via Storyful
