Fire Rescue Services have confirmed a three hectare forest fire north of West Vancouver.

The fire is described as “relatively small” and is spreading up the mountain.

According to Metro Vancouver the fire poses no risk to residents but it has yet to be contained.

“It’s three hectares, what we call a low intensity ground fire that’s in the cliffs above the highway,” said  Coastal Fire Centre Fire Information Officer Donna Macpherson.

It is believed that a power line was the cause of the fire.

The fire has led to closures on the northbound portion of the highway and drivers are being rerouted with expected delays.

Seven crew members and three helicopters have been dispatched to deal with the blaze.
