There may have been 40 firefighters on the scene and a mob of journalists with pens and tape recorders at the ready, but the small fire that broke out at Cascades paper factory in Candiac late Sunday afternoon didn’t warrant the attention it got. So says Suzanne Blanchet, president and chief executive officer of Cascades Tissue Group. “There really wasn’t anything to get excited about,” she said of the fire that was fueled by the presence of dust from paper particles. “It was really a very minor fire. Only one paper machine of the two we have had to be shut down and it only took 10 hours to get it started up again.” Blanchet doesn’t anticipate any major costs to be incurred from the fire. “Nothing was damaged, it was just a matter of getting the paper machine up and running again and we did this with no problems.”
