Emergency crews are just arriving and huge flames can be seen from miles away.
And as crews are still rolling into the scene and more teams from neighbouring communities have been put on standby, there are added reports that there is also a small building on fire, hydro lines and poles ablaze, and fuel spilled on the ground that has shooting off flames.
A makeshift command centre has been set up nearby at the Gold’s Gym
and paramedics are being directed there to help with patients –
unclear how many at this time.
CP Police and a CP Hazmat team have also been dispatched, with reports the hazmat team is about an hour away. There are initial reports a couple of their locomotives were involved in the collision with the semi.
