Firefighters respond to partial roof collapse at U.S. Silica

Posted by wlpo on January 16, 2016

Firefighters from Naplate and Ottawa rushed to U.S. Silica Friday evening but it wasn’t for a fire.

There was a partial roof collapse on the sand property along Boyce Memorial Drive in Ottawa. A captain with the Ottawa Fire Department says there was a leak on a conveyer belt which caused sand to build up over time and led to the roof collapse. Ottawa’s tower truck helped to get rid of the sand.

Nobody was injured.
