Burns Lake community pulls together after deadly mill explosion
The village of Burns Lake is still reeling after an explosion at the sawmill Friday. Eyewitnesses say the roof of the mill literally blew off.
The blast killed one worker. Nineteen more were injured, one man is still missing.
Now the community is struggling to make sense of what happened.
Albert Gerow is the chief of the Burns Lake Band, and the president and CEO of the Burns Lake Native Development Corporation -- a partial owner of the sawmill.
He spoke with Daybreak Host, Chris Walker, about how his community is coping.
