A large fire has broken out in Sooke, causing a plume of smoke over the municipality.

Fire crews from Otter Point, Sooke and Metchosin are currently battling the flames, which allegedly broke out just after 5:30 p.m. at a commercial building.

The fire has completely engulfed a building and is reportedly causing sporadic explosions – some residents in the area tell Victoria Buzz there is a propane filling station which could be the source of the fire.

Edward Milne Road is closed and police are asking the public to avoid the area.

Omg. That's right by the high school
