Firefighters were called to Costco in the east end of St. John’s early this afternoon after a vehicle burst into flames outside the store.
St. John’s Regional brought the blaze under control, but not before the store was evacuated and gas pumps shut down as a safety precaution.
Shortly after, photos surfaced on social media showing dark plumes of smoke filling the air.
The fire has since been extinguished. There’s no word on any injuries.
