Flames could be seen leaping from the roof of Frenchies Diner, a hotdog and poutine restaurant located at 2470 Main Street

Vancouver firefighters are battling a three-alarm blaze at a commercial strip on Main Street near Broadway.

The fire broke out around 11 a.m. Flames could be seen leaping from the roof of Frenchies Diner, a hotdog and poutine restaurant located at 2470 Main Street.

Fire crews are using a trench cut, a technique that involves the removal of a thin portion of the roof, to isolate an unburned building from the adjacent blaze.

Main Street has been closed to northbound traffic from Broadway to 7th Avenue, while Broadway has been shut down between Kingsway and Quebec Street.
