KAMLOOPS —  For the second night in a row, Kamloops Fire and Rescue attended the Domtar pulp mill for a small fire.

Crews were called out to the mill early this morning.

Acting platoon captain Ken Hart says it was a small blaze in the steam plant, where a fire started in the wall. It took crews about two hours to get it put out.

Hart says it wasn't a big fire and there was no structural damage. He says most of the time was spent gaining access to the fire in the wall itself.

Hart says no cause has been established yet.

Coincidentally, this morning's blaze was only about 50 feet away from a fire Tuesday night, where oil from a malfunctioning generator motor sprayed onto a hot steam pipe and ignited.
