Moose Jaw Times Herald - - CULTURE - TIMESHER­ALD STAFF

The Moose Jaw Fire De­part­ment re­sponded to a call at an in­dus­trial plant off the North Ser­vice Road at 9:58 a.m. Thurs­day.

Rush­ing to the scene where smoke was bil­low­ing black, crews found two pieces of ma­chin­ery on fire, ac­cord­ing to Cur­tis Beler, as­sis­tant fire chief for the de­part­ment. They ex­tin­guished the fire be­fore it could spread be­yond those two units, tak­ing about two hours on the scene in all.

He es­ti­mated dam­age to be about $60,000 and said the fire was ac­ci­den­tally caused and that no one was in­jured in the incident.

Po­lice were dis­patched to the area, but as there was no threat to pub­lic safety or need for traf­fic con­trol, the Moose Jaw Po­lice Ser­vice were not in­volved.
