Fire at CYYC

Currently at CYYC there is an aircraft fire at Gate B33. Our aircraft has since been evacuated as has the entire B Terminal. Seems that everyone is ok, I will post updates as I hear more.

Oh my gosh. Hopefully everyone is safe. It doesn’t look horrible and it looks like it’s contained to the aircraft/gate so that’s better than an airport wide fire.

It was the baggage loader/rear cargo hold. Unsure where it started as it was already on fire when I boarded my plane.

It might’ve been something in one of the passengers bags that caught alight?

Wow. In real life, I wouldn’t be taking pictures, I would be scavenging to get off the plane in case of fire spread. It’s a good thing this wasn’t on your plane, but still, that’s pretty dangerous

It was hard to tell, but it looked like there was also fire inside the cargo hold. I didn’t dare take pictures on the ground after we were evacuated ;)

You should have taken a video… You could have made national news! (But no really, good thing your safe — That’s pretty scary)

I took the pictures before they decided to evacuate us. The fire got a lot bigger after the pictures. It was surrounding the wing by the time we were evacuated.

imagine if you were at the gate and you saw your plane catch fire and then like 3 hours later they said everyone can board the same plane. lol
