A company and three individuals have been fined after pleading guilty to charges arising from a fire at a Kingston construction project that saw a London crane operator rescued by a military helicopter.

Jay Patry Enterprises Inc. pleaded guilty of failing as a constructor to ensure that measures in the Construction Projects Regulation were carried out and was fined $60,000.

Company owners Jason and Nathan Patry pleaded guilty for failing to furnish all necessary means in their power to facilitate an investigation by an inspector and were fined $7,500 and $4,000 respectively.

Troy Joseph Stelmach of Stelmach Property Management Inc., was fined $2,500 on the same charge.

When fire broke out at the project on Dec. 17, 2013, most of the workers were evacuated unharmed. However, Adam Jastrzebski was forced to flee the cab and crawl out on the boom of the crane. He suffered burns to his back and hand before he was eventually rescued by a military helicopter.

The Fire Marshal was not able to determine the specific cause or origin of the fire.
