Armstrong Spallumcheen Fire Department made quick work of a tractor trailer unit fire near the Tolko mill in Spallumcheen Tuesday.

The call came in shortly after noon.

The fire was in the trailer unit which had steam and electrical generators inside that were being used as a heating jacket for a vegetable oil rail car that was adjacent to the trailer.

There was no tractor hooked up to the trailer.

As the trailer was on property adjacent to a settling pond at Tolko, mill employees assisted the firefighters in damning and diking runoff residue.

Nobody was injured and the fire is not deemed suspicious.
