WELLAND – Welland firefighters responded to the scene of a reported fire at the under-construction Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre, Niagara College, Thursday night.

Spectators said some flames were seen on the roof and accompanying smoke but the fire was soon out. One person said it is believed the fire was tar related. The smell of tar was stuck in the night air long after the firefighters had done their work.

The fire was reported shortly after 7:30 p.m. There was nothing left to see, in terms of action, by the time I arrived around 8:30 p.m.
