Another fire at Domtar facility in Kamloops, B.C.

KAMLOOPS, British Columbia (From CFJC Today Kamloops) -- For the second time this month, crews were called to the Domtar Pulp mill for a small blaze on Tuesday night.

"About 9:30 PM we got called to Domtar," says Platoon Captain Steve Butchart. "Down in their steam plant area there is a piece of equipment, a motor generator, that malfunctioned down there and sprayed some type of oil that covered one of the steam pipes."

Butchart said the steam pipe was extremely hot, and when the oil hit the pipe, it caught on fire, spreading to some of the insulation close by.

Butchart says " the crews at Domtar jumped into action quickly and had the fire pretty much out by the time we got there. There was still some burning in a little of the insulation and we took care of that. It was good work on their part to deal with it quickly before it could get any bigger. "
