Great Sudbury Fire Services is on the scene of a fire involving multiple units at the Fisher Wavy Skead Pit. Deputy Chief Jesse Oshell reports that tanker operations are occurring in the area and asks that everyone please be cautious and stay away from the scene.
Sudbury Paramedics were on the scene this morning assisting with rehabilitation and medical checks at the fire scene. Volunteer and Career Firefighters were both called to the scene to control the fire.
Deputy Fire Chief reported there were no injuries in the fire and it's believed no one was in the plant at the time. Specialty concrete products are manufactured at the site and there is a lot of industrial equipment inside, conveyor systems, rubber belts and chemicals.
