A fire that engulfed a road paver outside an east London business caused $30,000 damage Saturday. The fire sent a plume of smoke billowing into the air that was visable 5 kilometers away Saturday afternoon. Fire fighters received a report of a crane on fire at a construction company on Jetstream Rd., west of Veterans's Memorial Parkway.
Upon arriving, firefighters found a road paver, not a crane, enfulfed in flames. Twenty firefighters worked to battle the blaze. "They made a quick stop on it so it didn't spread into the building." said Platoon Chief Mike Black.
Damage is estmated at $30,000. Nobody was injured. The cause of the fire is unknown.
