McBride Mill Fire Update

Friday, April 7, 2017 @ 3:41 PM

McBride, B.C. – The Regional District of Fraser-Fort George has provided an update on this Wednesday’s fire at BKB Cedar Manufacturing near McBride.

“The building is lost, and crews continue to work on extinguishing the fire in a nearby mulch pile,” says Renee McCloskey, manager of external relations. “The fire is not posing a risk to neighbouring properties or forested areas.”

She adds the fire is contained though the investigation is ongoing. Crews are expected to remain on scene all weekend and the public is asked to stay away due to the ongoing investigation and because the area is not safe.

She says another update will be provided tomorrow morning.
