Our emergency response plan has been activated and response personnel, including first responders from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, are on site. We are deeply saddened to confirm one fatality and a second person is at hospital. All other personnel are accounted for.

The affected facility has been shut down and we are stabilizing the scene. There is no immediate danger to the neighbouring communities or personnel still on site.
