Small fire knocked down at Tolko mill in Kelowna

KELOWNA–Employees are being credited with knocking down a small fire at the Tolko mill in Kelowna’s North End.

Emergency crews responded to reports of a fire in the wood flooring in one of the buildings just after 4:30 Thursday afternoon.

“We threw a lot of resources at it because we have been here in the past,” explained Cpt. Glenn Paley with the Kelowna Fire Department.So it generated a full response of ladder truck and several engines.”

Cpt. Paley says when they arrived on scene, mill employees already had already put the fire out.  Crews double checked to make sure everything was okay before leaving the scene.
