NOBLEFORD — Several explosions and a large fire destroyed a feed mill in southern Alberta.

Firefighters from two nearby communities responded to the blaze Tuesday at the Klok Feed Mill east of Nobleford.

By the time fire crews arrived on scene, one building was already consumed by flames.

Trevor Wade, a feed mill worker, was outside when the first explosion rocked the building.

His father was inside, so Wade and a friend pulled his dad and another man to safety through a broken window.

Fire officials say everyone escaped without injury.

Explosions continued as flames reached several large containers of canola oil that we being used to make the cattle feed.

Owner Peter Klok stood by watching his family business go up in flames.

Firefighters say it’s too early to tell what may have sparked the explosion.
