Miramichi mill fire being probed
Miramichi Lumber Products Inc. temporarily closed after Tuesday morning fire in electrical room
The Miramichi Fire Department is investigating a fire Tuesday at Miramichi Lumber Products Inc., which has closed the mill, at least temporarily.
Fire Chief Ian Gavet says smoke was visible when crews arrived at the mill on Jane Street shortly after 7 a.m.
"However crews were successful in containing the fire to the electrical room and small office so that the rest of the mill was not affected," he said.
"It's probably going to cause some long-term shut down for the mill because of the nature of the fire."
The fire was extinguished before 9 a.m., said Gavet.
No one was injured.
The mill has about 65 employees, according to the Industry Canada website, which was last updated about a year ago.
