Dominion Diamond Corporation said a fire broke out at its Ekati mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories on Thursday, prompting all staff to be evacuated from the process plant.

The blaze started at 7 a.m. during a planned outage. The incident management team was activated to respond and the emergency response team was called to the scene. The fire was contained, all personnel were accounted for and no injuries were reported, the miner said in a statement the same day.

“Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our workforce and of all the people involved in responding to this incident,” the miner said.
