One injured in fire at Canadian Natural oil sands project

CALGARY (Reuters) - One person was injured after an electrical fire broke out at Canadian Natural Resources Ltd’s Horizon oil sands project on Monday evening, the company said on Tuesday.

The fire was quickly extinguished and the person was being treated for minor injuries, Canadian Natural spokeswoman Julie Woo said in a statement.

Production is unaffected as the 190,000-barrel-per-day Horizon project is already shut down for 45 days of maintenance, Woo said, adding that the company is assessing the fire damage.
