Apartment fire

A cigarette may have been the cause of an early-morning apartment fire on Kingsway at 19th Avenue Saturday that gutted a third-floor suite, according to media reports.

Several people were trapped in their suites before Burnaby fire crews rescued them. Fire crews were called to the three-alarm blaze at the Salish Villa complex at about 1:30 a.m. There were no serious injuries reported.
