VANCOUVER — Firefighters say no one was injured after a silo collapsed in North Vancouver Sept. 11.

Jeremy Duncan, assistant chief of operations for the District of North Vancouver’s Fire Rescue Services, says three units responded to the industrial accident.

He says on-site safety staff quickly accounted for all personnel.

The company that owns the silo, Fibreco, says on its website that it provides bulk handling services for wood pellet producers and is expanding to service agricultural producers.
