BRITISH COLUMBIA (From news reports) -- The quick thinking of a night watch person helped prevent a fire at a Tolko Lumby mill from growing at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
"The night watchman or security guard was able to get a hose on it to slow things down, and the facility's fire suppression (sprinkler) system worked as well," said Lumby Fire Chief Tony Clayton on Monday.
"Those things helped keep the fire to the area of origin and we got it knocked out. They were a big help. It could have been a lot worse if he didn't wet things down."
Firefighters from Lumby were helped out by members of the Lavington Fire Department to get the blaze under control and out in about three hours.
The fire has been ruled accidental in nature.
Nobody was working at the facility at the time of the blaze, and the facility was fully operational Monday morning.
