Rio Tinto port hit by fire

A fire was brought under control after a couple of hours today at Rio Tinto’s Camp Lambert port facility in Western Australia. No injuries were reported.

A section of the plant has been damaged in the early morning fire, Rio officials said, but the port has since reopened for business.

Investigations are underway to work out what happened. The fire started while routine maintenance was underway at the iron ore hub.
