EDMONTON -- Edmonton Fire Rescue Services is reassuring residents that a bright light in northeast Edmonton is actually a flare from the Esso Refinery, and not a large fire.
EFRS made the statement after people posting on social media that the flare looked like a large fire.
Back in November, a flare from the Strathcona Refinery over Edmonton created a visual phenomenon in the sky.
