Oil rags the likely cause of early morning blaze: firefighters
West Heights Manufacturing, a site of Heroux Devtek Landing Gear division, is shown on June 3, 2016.
Kitchener firefighters say oily rags are likely the cause of an early morning fire at Devtek Aerospace.
Saturday morning, just before 5:00 a.m. crews were called to West Heights manufacturing on Highland road.
Fire officials say, three, 45-gallon drums of oil rags inside the building overheated and caught on fire before spreading to wood pallets outside.
Damage to the building is estimated to be $30,000 and the cause is not considered suspicious.
