Springfield Fire and Rescue is attending a large fire beside the Trans-Canada Highway just inside the East Perimeter Highway.
Black smoke was seen billowing from a location near Symington Road Wednesday afternoon. A witness at the scene who did not want their name used says a large industrial building caught fire and became completely engulfed in flames in a matter of minutes.

The witness says he could hear a few gas tanks explode but it did not appear there were any injuries.
By the time firefighters arrived the building appeared to be a total loss.
Nearby business Grand Prix Amusements had to be cleared of all customers as a precaution.
There is no word at this time on the cause of the fire.
Crews are on scene and this is a developing story. More details to come.
