Mill fire in Powell River Paper Excellence mill under control

CANADA (From news reports) - A fire in a warehouse on June 25 on A dock at Powell River's Paper Excellence Catalyst paper mill is now under control.

Fire chief Terry Peters said all the fire department's crews were at the fire.

"We're working incredibly closely with the mill staff, with their emergency response team and the mill supervising staff," said Peters. "We've got it under control. It was a close one here.

"There was a sprinkler system in the building and it did help."

Peters said fire crews had been onsite since the fire started. He said there is significant content damage in the warehouse with paper rolls having caught fire.

Peters said it was too early to speculate on a cause of the blaze.

"We have no idea at this time," he said. "Investigation will be pending, but the fire's definitely in the warehouse."
