07 December 2017

All major roads closed due to a massive fire at a food processing plant in Burlington have now reopened, police confirmed Thursday morning.

The blaze at 4480 Paletta Ct. - that's near Appleby Line and South Service Rd. - broke out around 4:10 p.m. on December 6.

No fire crews have yet been able to go inside and are fighting from outside the building, according to the Burlington fire department.

Burlington firefighters are also on scene at Paletta International Corporation near Appleby Line and the QEW as they continue to douse hot spots with aerial devices and liaise with the fire marshal's office.

Before Thursday, the White House had not yet confirmed whether Trump would follow in his predecessors' footsteps. Trump has faced persistent questions about his health since launching his presidential campaign in 2015.

At the height of the fire, 40 firefighters and 14 trucks were on scene battling the blaze and firefighters from Oakville and Hamilton responded.

At least half of the building has been destroyed, however, there's no official damage estimate yet.

The City of Burlington said in a statement there are no reports of injuries and everyone is accounted for.

Lazenby said it's too early to determine the cause of the fire and damage caused by it, but noted it is "significant".
