Two people have lost all belongings and their home after a fire tore their homeless camp apart 

The fire broke out at the North end of Oak Street Bridge in Vancouver.

Charred books and lamps and shattered glass is all that’s left after the fire.

The pair were living in a tent, but now have nowhere left to go.

Firefighters say there were small explosions from propane tanks when they arrived on scene and no one was injured doing the fire.
