Firefighters were called to Intertape Polymer on Wednesday afternoon after a machine caught fire.

Truro Fire Chief Blois Currie tells our newsroom the machine was on the production line, but they were able to get the blaze knocked down quickly.

Firefighters were called to the scene around 2:15 p.m.

Currie says once the fire was out they made sure it hadn't spread anywhere, and there were no injuries reported.

He says most of the smoke inside was from the extinguishers they were using, which was mostly cleared up by 3:30.

The Bible Hill Fire Brigade provided coverage at the Truro Fire Station and Currie says the Hilden Volunteer Fire Brigade also went to the scene.
