Fire crews appear to have contained a massive blaze at a lumber operation in British Columbia’s Interior on Tuesday.
Flames broke out at the log yard at West Fraser’s WestPine Medium Density Fibreboard mill in Quesnel, B.C., at 2 p.m.
In a written statement, the company’s spokesperson said the fire is under control, but will take several days to fully extinguish.
There were no injuries and operations at the mill are continuing as normal, the company said.
An investigation into what caused the fire will begin once the blaze has been extinguished.
Crews from several fire departments and the regional district have assisted in fighting the blaze.
