Fire at Interfor lumber yard near Castlegar, B.C.

CASTLEGAR, British Columbia (From news reports) -- The Castlegar Fire Department responded to a call at the Interfor lumber yard near Keenleyside Dam on Thursday afternoon.

Employees from BC Eco Chips, contracted to Zellstoff Celgar, were burning a slash pile when a wind storm blew a spark onto a pile of nearby lumber and ignited it.

Men working in the yard noticed the fire on top of the pile and called for help.

The logs that were burned were destined for Celgar to make wood chips, and one BC Eco Chips employee was optimistic that not that many of the logs in the pile had been burned.
