MERRITT, BC - All-out efforts by sawmills across British Columbia to clean up sawdust after two deadly mill explosions earlier this year probably meant a fire at a mill in Merritt was prevented from being much worse, the city's fire chief says.
The fire broke out in a compressor room in the main mill of the Tolko Industries operation in the Nicola Valley on Wednesday.
No one was hurt and only the one area of the mill was damaged, said RCMP Const. Tracey Dunsmore.
