FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Department were called out this morning to put out a fire at Peace Valley OSB.

Fire Chief Fred Burrows said that the fire department got the call at around 11:00 this morning about the fire, which was burning in some of the mill’s equipment. Burrows said that the fire started amongst some debris near equipment that chips up logs. He explained that the fire was more of a “nuisance fire,” adding that the fire occurred amongst equipment that is so robust that it wasn’t damaged in the fire. He says that the mill most likely won’t have any negative impacts on OSB production.

At around 12:30, fire crews were packing up their equipment. Burrows said that the cause of the fire is still being investigated, and hasn’t been determined yet.
