Drug Lab Causes $7 Million in Damage

The fire at a pharmaceutical laboratory in south Edmonton Tuesday caused $7 million in damages, say fire investigators.

Two fire crews were still on the scene at NAEJA Pharma Inc. at 91st Street and 42nd Avenue Wednesday morning extinguishing remaining hostspots.

The fire started when an unnamed chemical began leaking in a refrigeration unit.

Workers tried putting out the fire before calling 911.

As plumes of yellow and black smoke billowed from the building, police used bull horns to warn area residents to stay in their homes and close their windows after the province issued an air quality warning.

The fire was declared under control at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
