Who knows when next fire will occur?

Re: Fire rips through woodworking plant, Aug. 28 The News.

Living just half a mile from the Ancaster Industrial Park, I watched the fire burning through the night and watched smoke rising through the day Tuesday, all the while thankful that the fire had started at night when no workers were in the buildings.

This entire industrial area has only one exit/entrance. How could hundreds of workers have possibly exited the park if this exit had been blocked? The only access to this complex is via Highway 2 (Wilson Street) at the light.

I have a polling map which shows both Claybar Road and Cormorant Road as exiting onto Trinity Road to the west and Osprey Drive exiting onto Shaver to the east.

I have lived on Trinity for more than 40 years and I have never seen any of these exit roads.

Who knows when the next fire or explosion will occur as this complex expands, especially now with the Tim Hortons coffee roasting facility being built on Cormorant Road?

Water pressure was an issue at this recent fire. Maybe the water lines running to the new Ancaster Fairgrounds have reduced the amount of water now available to the industrial park. City water was never intended to run as far west as the fairgrounds. Like more of this council’s magic, the fairgrounds got city water, even though no other businesses or homes along Trinity have water or sewers, even to this day.
