Fire Department puts out condensate truck fire


FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Fire Department were called out last night to tackle a potentially dangerous situation.

Fire Chief Fred Burrows says that at approximately 2:40 this morning, crews were called out to a tank truck that was on fire in a yard on 100th Ave. near the traffic circle. Upon arrival, crews noted that the tractor trailer unit was fully engulfed in flames, which were beginning to encroach onto the trailer that is normally used to carry condensates. Burrows said that crews quickly knocked the fire down, but were not able to save the tractor trailer, which was a total loss. However, he added that the situation could have been much worse, as there were other trailers in the yard that contained condensates.

Burrows says that the cause of the fire is currently under investigation, but it is not deemed suspicious.
