Fire breaks out at Ventra Plastics plant in Peterborough

No one was injured but employees had to be evacuated following a morning fire at Ventra Plastics in Peterborough’s industrial park on Tuesday morning.

Frefighters were called to the auto parts plant on Technology Drive around 10 a.m. after a fire alarm was triggered. Crews discovered thick smoke billowing from an injection moulding machine.

One employee was assessed by paramedics for smoke inhalation. Frefighters ventilated the building as water from a sprinkler system was discharged from an exterior pipe.

Employees waited outside until firefighters cleared the scene.

The cause of the fire or damage estimate is not yet known.
