Residents were curious as to what had happened in the area. The black smoke led them to believe it was man-made.

Shortly after, TRCCTB.COM discovered it was due to a front end loader catching fire in the front end. One man was battling the blaze before fire crews arrived and took over.

The fire was easily knocked down by hard-working firefighters but the man who was taking on the blaze before their arrival was sent to the hospital with smoke inhalation issues.

The fire was contained to the single piece of equipment and no other injuries were sustained.
