Hazardous materials crews called to east Ottawa fire
No one hurt in Stevenage Drive blaze
Hazardous materials crews were called to a two-alarm fire Saturday afternoon at a commercial-industrial facility in east Ottawa.
At around 12:35 p.m., firefighters responded to a report that multiple vehicles and storage containers had caught fire at a facility at 2705 Stevenage Rd.
That address is home to Drain-All Ltd., an environmental waste handling company that the City of Ottawa uses as a location for its household hazardous waste disposal days.
