Fire at Horizon leaves one with minor injuries

A fire at Canadian Natural Resources Limited’s (CNRL) Horizon Oil Sands plant site has left one individual with minor injuries.

On Monday night CNRL’s on-site first responders were called to an electrical building fire. The fire was extinguished and workers in the immediate area were evacuated.

CNRL wrote in an email to MyMcMurray that as a result of the fire, one individual had been sent for a medical evaluation and was being treated for minor injuries.

The fire is under investigation and the extent of the damage to the building is still being determined.

The Horizon facility was fully shutdown early Monday for planned 45-day turnaround maintenance.
