Brampton Food Business Damaged by Fire


A fire has damaged a long-standing poultry distribution company in Brampton.

At 9:50 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 7, Peel police announced that blaze had broken out in the Tomken and Wilkinson Rd. area, just west of the 407.

The fire, which Mayor Linda Jeffrey indicated was still smouldering as of 2:45 p.m. today (Oct. 8), has damaged the family-owned TNT Foods on Westwyn Court.

"Was so sorry to hear about the fire which damaged a long-time #Brampton TNT Foods on Westwyn Court," Jeffrey wrote in a tweet.

"Many of our fire crews were on scene in the initial response - I want to thank them for their good work on this Thanksgiving weekend.”

In an earlier tweet, Jeffrey said Brampton Fire and Emergency Services Chief Bill Boyes confirmed that the smoke "diminished substantially" from the height of the fire.

The main issue, she wrote, is that there are some packing and cardboard materials which may still be smouldering.

Jeffrey says there’s no risk or hazard to any neighbouring businesses or the public.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the blaze.
