The CW TV show "Superman & Lois" was filming an explosive, fiery scene in Vancouver's Gastown overnight Jan. 6-7, 2023.

Some locals may have caught a glimpse of a fiery scene being filmed in Vancouver last night (Jan. 6)

The CW's popular TV show Superman & Lois is known to film around the city and the cast is often spotted both in and out of character.

One of the lead actors even performed his first solo gig at a Vancouver pub. 

Film crews were working overnight in Gastown, filming a scene featuring an explosion and a building engulfed in flames. 

From Friday (Jan. 6) afternoon to 4 a.m. on Saturday (Jan. 7), crews were filming scenes and exterior work at 100 Alexander Street. 

One local caught the action on video. 

"A big explosion happened and now the building is on ‘fire’ and garbage all on the street. Looks pretty cool!" the onlooker writes on Twitter. 

Two actors can be seen walking away from the flames.
