KAMLOOPS — Kamloops Fire Rescue has made quick work of a fire in a large industrial bin on the Tk'emlups Reserve this afternoon.

The fire was reported at about 2:20 coming from Progressive Rubber on Chilcotin Road.

Black smoke could be seen billowing from the fire for a short time before Kamloops Fire Rescue crews arrived to douse the flames.

No one was hurt, and investigators will now look into the cause.
