A two-alarm fire heavily damaged an apartment building Saturday night in east Vancouver, displacing more than 25 residents, according to the Vancouver Fire Department.

Crews were dispatched at 10:44 p.m. to the Sunpointe Apartments, 900 S.E. Park Crest Ave., in the Cascade Highlands neighborhood north of Mountain View High School and arrived to find heavy fire showing from the structure. Initial crews worked to evacuate residents and extinguish the blaze.

Video shared on social media showed fire appeared to be burning on the back side of an apartment building in the complex. It was reported under control at 11:21 p.m. No injuries were reported.

The building was saved, but 10 units were not habitable, according to a fire department statement. It said the department was working with the Red Cross to find shelter for the more than 25 residents displaced as a result.

The fire is being investigated by the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office.
