Crews put out fire at disposal centre in south Nanaimo

Nanaimo Fire Rescue called to DBL Disposal late Tuesday night

Materials burned up but the building wasn’t damaged in a fire at a disposal centre in south Nanaimo on Tuesday night.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue crews were called out at 11:45 p.m. to DBL Disposal Services Ltd. on Tenth Street to find a pile of materials on fire close to the back of the building.

Five fire trucks were on scene and heavy machinery belonging to the business was also used to help fight the fire.

Dean Jones, one of the owners of DBL, said surveillance video showed the fire started in an excavator and spread to the piles. He said the building was not damaged and he expected that the depot would be open the next day.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue is already investigating the fire.
