Recycling plant fire in Chateauguay
A fire at a Chateauguay recycling plant has sparked environmental concerns.
No injuries were reported and the cause isn't yet known.
"They're recycling everything and anything, so we don't really know when we arrived what was burning until a person from the company arrived and told us what was burning, so we took water and foam to extinguish the fire", Luc Lapointe, chief of operations, told CJAD News.
It wasn't exactly clear what was being stored in the facility.
Lapointe says he suspects the fire was the result of a chemical reaction.
The blaze, fought by some 50 firefighters, including those from neighboring municipalities, broke out on Belanger near Industriel in the industrial sector.
There's no word yet on a possible enviromental impact.
