Large industrial blaze sends black smoke over Henday, Sherwood Park
EDMONTON -- Strathcona County Fire worked to douse a large industrial fire Tuesday night after responding to reports of an explosion in the area of 34 Street and 93 Avenue.
Crews arrived at the Genalta Recycling complex just after 10 p.m. and found a recycling pile on fire.
Loud bangs could be heard coming from the scene, but firefighters believed the explosions were a result of the blaze and not a cause of the fire.
Fire officials confirmed that no injuries or deaths occurred.
Firefighters could be seen dousing the flames from a ladder truck.
The fire was still burning as of Wednesday afternoon, with crews about 50 to 60 per cent into their work, Strathcona Fire told CTV News Edmonton.
Officials said it would take another eight to 10 hours to put the fire out.
