At approximately 10 am this morning, the City’s Fire Department responded to an incident involving the Bunker C fuel tank in the Moresby area.  In the contractor’s process of dismantling the tank, a flare up occurred, which the Fire Department was able to address through the use of foam to douse the flames. No one was injured during the incident, and there was no release of product into the surrounding environment. The contractor and engineer will be reassessing their methods prior to restarting the work to ensure that an incident of this nature does not occur again.
