Firefighters were called to the Husky Energy ethanol plant in Lloydminster, AB/SK on December 30 after a blaze started in a piece of equipment, according to Canadian news organizations.
Occupants of homes near the plant said they heard a loud noise come from the facility at about 10:30 p.m. in coverage by MyLloydminsterNow.com.
“There was a a fire last night in a dryer used in the Lloydminster ethanol plant,” a company spokesperson told CBC News in a statement. “It was quickly extinguished and there were no injuries.”
A sprinkler system activated and doused the flames, the news broadcaster said. Husky has halted operations at the site as an investigation is carried out.
