Abbotsford fire crews battled a blaze at a rubber-making plant on Saturday night.

Assistant Fire Chief Craig Leighton said crews were called to Industrial Way off Highway 11 around 9:30 p.m.

“Found heavy fire involving their finished product, their rubber matting. It is difficult to fight in that their products and combustion are extremely dangerous. We had to main our personnel at all times in and around the area and anywhere the smoke is drifting too. ”

Leighton said there were no injuries but the cause of the fire is not yet known.
