Syncrude Investigating Small Fire At Mildred Lake Upgrader

Syncrude has confirmed that a fire erupted this morning at its Mildred Lake Upgrader.

It’s the second fire to occur at Syncrude since a naphtha leak lead to an explosion at the Upgrader in March – sending one worker to hospital.

Public Relations for Syncrude Leithan Slade tells Fort McMurray News the small fire has since been extinguished.

"I can confirm that we did respond to a fire at Plant 29-1 which is within our Mildred Lake Upgrader. It was reported around 9 a.m., and was extinguished around 10:20 and there are no injuries as a result of the incident."

Slade adds that Plant 29-1 is separate from the location of the fire that broke out in March.

The cause is still under investigation.

We’ll have more information when it becomes available.
