First responders are on the scene of a major fire at an industrial building in Springdale, RCMP say.

Social media messages indicate the fire is happening at Yates Boat Shop. The fire broke out Wednesday evening on Corporal Bouzane Boulevard, which runs parallel to Little Bay Road, the main street in the community. Both roads were impassable as fire hoses are crossing the streets to allow firefighters to battle the blaze. The main road is now passable, but police warned the public to expect delays.

Police say it’s essential the general public stay out of the area so the hoses are not damaged and fire fighters are able to do their work. Both pedestrians and vehicle operators are asked to avoid the area.
