Smoke without fire at animal waste plant

Fire crews carry out ventilation at site

Fire crews were called out to deal with a faulty industrial boiler at the animal waste processing plant on Richmond Hill this morning.

Two engines and an aerial ladder platform were deployed after smoke was spotted emanating from the building at around 11am this morning.

Power to the boiler was then isolated and a breathing apparatus team with a hose reel and thermal imaging camera confirmed there was no sign of fire.

Ventilation was then carried out before workers were allowed back into the property.
