Drivers in Saanich saw some delays near the Uptown Shopping Centre Friday morning after a cube van caught fire.

The fire was captured in dramatic video by a passerby. Two people are seen using fire extinguishers to try to put out the fire in the front of the van before Saanich firefighters arrive.
