Fire at former east end Shell refinery

Posted By: CJAD · 10/23/2012 4:05:00 PM

Twenty-five  firefighters made quick work of a small, but smoky fire at the former Shell refinery at 10501 Sherbrooke East. 

The fire started around 2:35 p.m., inside an old oil tank during demolition.

Workers using a welding torch most probably sparked the fire on some wood scraps. 

Fire chief Mario Trottier says there was no immediate danger to firefighters or the public because there was no oil or gas in the tanks.

No injuries were reported.
