At approximately 8:12pm on Wednesday November 6th Union Hill Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched to the 6300 block of Dean Parkway for the reported automatic fire alarm. Engine 133 arrived with nothing showing from a 1-1/2 story commercial facility. Engine 133’s crew made entry and located a heavy chemical odor and smoke inside the north part of the building. UHFD command upgraded the alarm and requested Ontario Fire Company mutual aid to the scene. Upon a thorough search of the facility crews were able to isolate the cause of the issue to a faulty manufacturing process.
Due to the nature of the chemicals released from this malfunction crews spent a lengthy period of time ventilating the facility and ensuring that workers could safely re-enter the building.
Thank you to our volunteers and our neighboring companies for their swift and professional response this evening!
