Richmond firefighters had to race to the scene of a blaze in the early hours of Sunday.

Richmond Fire-Rescue (RFR) got the call at around 2 a.m. of two hedges on fire in the 8000 block of Steveston Highway, close to its intersection with No. 3 Road.

A poster on social media site Reddit took photos of the blaze, noting that fire trucks were on the way and that two front yards seemed to be on fire.

RFR’s Acting Deputy Chief, Grant Wyenberg, told the Richmond News that crews responded to this area for a report of two separate hedges on fire. 

“On arrival, crews quickly extinguished the trees and some slight extension to an adjacent structure. The fire is under investigation at this time.”
