A small fire at the powerhouse on Doon campus Sept. 26 forced the main road and pathways to be closed.

The fire was reported to Security and Parking Services at about 3:10 p.m.

“There wasn’t a lot of smoke at all because it was in the smokestack,” said Barb Eichholz, supervisor at security services. “There were employees in the powerhouse but there were no injuries and no health concerns.”

The Kitchener fire department responded with its aerial ladder truck and staff from Facilities Management were also on the scene.

The cause is still under investigation.
