The Family Day Fire at EACOM on Peoples Road didn’t cost the community any jobs.
In a statement to Saultonline, Biliana Necheva, a senior advisor and public relations representative for EACOM explained what happened.
“There was indeed a small external fire at our Sault Ste. Marie plant which set off the sprinkler alarm, triggering communication to the fire department. Thanks to the responsiveness of the team on site and the efficient intervention of the Sault Ste. Marie Fire Department, the fire was quickly brought under control without any injuries,” said Necheva.
“The chip bin and adjoining building sustained some damage, as well as a chip truck positioned under the bins at the time of the fire.”
Employees were concerned they wouldn’t have work on Tuesday, however EACOM said the plant opened and operations were unaffected.
