TAYLOR, B.C. – Fire crews were called to the scene on Thursday morning to battle a fire in Taylor.

According to the District of Taylor Fire Chief, Steve Byford, they received a report of a structure fire at 8:40 a.m. at the Tervita tank farm on 249 Road in Taylor.

Byford says heavy black smoke could be seen for miles due to the hydrocarbon waste that was found to be burning in waste storage pits.
