Fire at Tolko Industries

Madison Erhardt

Firefighters responded to a fire in the chip pile at Tolko Mill in Kelowna Wednesday afternoon. 

Smoke was visible from the building about 1 p.m.

When crews arrived on scene, they approached the pile and found that a loader was on fire. 

"The Tolko crews had extinguished the fire, and right now, crews are making sure that nothing transfers into the chip pile, which could become quite a big problem, said KFD Platoon Capt. Tim Light. 

"Being a machinery, it's likely some mechanical thing went wrong," he added.
