UPDATE: Fire crews extinguish large fire burning at Surrey plastics plant

A large fire that broke out along the Langley and Surrey border and sent a large plume of black smoke into the air Thursday afternoon has been extinguished by fire crews.

The call came into the fire department at 1:44 p.m. that part of Mansonville Plastics, located at 19402 56 Ave, was on fire. An employee told Global News they produce Styrofoam.

Seven fire trucks responded and 30 firefighters were called to the scene.

Crews now are dealing with hot spots and the smoke is starting to clear, but they will be on scene for some time.

Surrey Fire says the blaze was almost entirely limited to the company’s Styrofoam product stored in the yard and there was minimal building damage.
