Massive fire guts King Tandoori restaurant (Fraser and 64th)

Wonder what happen....



Quote:
VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Crews battled a stubborn fire at a three-storey restaurant and office building in East Vancouver.

Flames started tearing through the roof of the Tandoori King on Fraser Street near 64th Ave just before 6 p.m. No one was hurt and there is no word on the cause.

The blaze left the owner at a loss for words. Manny Kooner said his family started the restaurant almost 25 years ago. He said it's difficult to think about the next step.

"I don't even know where to start, after this is all over, " he said. "I kind of see my childhood burning down right now."

"I was nine years old when they started the business, and I've andlways had my ha in it some how. I'm 32 now, and it's still a part of me."

Kooner says one of his employees spotted flames on the roof, while taking out the garbage around 5:30. He says everyone got out of the restaurant safely, and offices on the upper floors were also evacuated.

The next challenge Kooner faces is finding out what's left inside, a proposition he calls 'scary'.

Fire crews initially attacked the fire from inside the building, but had to retreat outside for safety purposes, fighting the fire in a defensive mode.

Are they still there? Been at least 5 hours. Think the damage was more towards the rear of the house.

Fraser was shut down when I passed by around 12 on Marine and the entire area was under a blanket of smoke so I guess round 2 was just starting up again.

I could smell it all along marine drive. I ended up at Ash Wednesday service and was all weirded out that the entire area smelled like smoke.

Wasn't this the place that had a feud with family members which lead another family member to open up a tandoori restaurant on the other side?
