After it burned for days spewing smoke into the skies, Metro Vancouver's Westminster pier after the fire looks completely unrecognizable.

In a video posted to YouTube on Friday, September 18, footage shows that practically nothing of the old pier remains, including the iconic "W" made out of shipping containers.

New Westminster says that the fire is contained, but underneath the deck, it's smouldering, and in the video you can see smoke rising still.

Dramatic photos and videos of the blaze were also posted online during the fire, which started on Sunday, September 13.

Just days later, police arrested an arson suspect and are still investigating.
