Fire at Tolko facility

WILLIAMS LAKE, British Columbia (From the Williams Lake Tribune) -- The Williams Lake fire department crews responded to a fire in the welding shop at the Tolko Lakeview (B.C.) mill Sunday, 25 Feb. 2017.

"We worked for a couple of hours on the outside and inside of a wall where the fire started, ripping part of it out to make sure the fire was extinguished," said Deputy Fire Chief Rob Warnock, noting they were called to the fire, which was located across the highway from the fire hall, at 7:50 a.m.

Mill manager Randy Chadney told the Tribune Monday it was a "pretty small fire" and had nothing to do with dust.

"It was contained to the welding shop and there were no injuries," Chadney said. "There was minimal damage and no impact to production."

Warnock said 22 firefighters responded with three fire trucks.
