Fire bordering B.C. fuel tank facility contained BURNABY, B.C. - A fire just a few hundred metres from the Kinder Morgan fuel tank facility in Metro Vancouver raged for a few hours before it was contained by about three dozen firefighters. Burnaby Fire Department Deputy Chief Dave Samson said they were called about 8 p.m. Saturday to the blaze burning in a large equipment storage facility used by a demolition business. "Our crews found a large storage facility with heavy fire from all sides and they declared the mode defensive, meaning no interior operations were going to take place." Samson said the fire was about 230 metres from the closest fuel tank, although the fire didn't spread to nearby greenspace or other homes.

CALGARY - A United Kingdom man who was removed from a WestJet flight after becoming disruptive has been ordered to reimburse the airline for the fuel used to bring him back to Calgary.

On Jan. 4, David Stephen Young was on a flight from Calgary to London when he was refused access to the aircraft washroom while the seatbelt light was activated.

He forced his way into the washroom and after returning to his seat became aggressive towards other passengers and the flight attendants.

The aircraft then returned to the Calgary International Airport where Young was arrested and charged with offences including causing a disturbance, criminal harassment and assaulting a peace officer.

Media reports say last week he pleaded guilty to Criminal Code and Aeronautics Act charges.

The aircraft had to dump fuel before it landed.

Young was ordered to pay $21,260.68 to cover fuel costs and sentenced to one day in prison for each of his offences.

His attorney says his client is a recovering alcoholic who had several drinks before boarding the aircraft. (CTV Calgary, The Canadian Press)

Drunk driver who killed passenger in high-speed crash given 4-year sentence.
A man who pleaded guilty to a drunk-driving crash that killed one of his passengers and badly injured another was given a four-year sentence in a Calgary court on Friday. Dale Neisz's blood alcohol content was nearly double the minimum impairment designation in July 2016 when he sped down Memorial Drive at nearly 140 km/h and lost control. The Ford Fusion hit the raised centre median at 5A St. N.W., rolled onto the driver's side and onto the roof. The car slid across the eastbound lanes of Memorial and off the road and came to a rest wrapped around a tree. The front passenger, Kanaye Renfrew, 30, was killed.
