The Quesnel Volunteer Fire Department was called to a blaze at the Tolko sawmill last night.
Fire Chief Ron Richert said they were dispatched at 11:40 and upon arrival, they had a fully involved structure fire.
“We were on scene for approximately five to five and a half hours,” Richert said, ‘We had four pieces of apparatus with a total of 16 firefighters”.
Richert said it was quite a large fire that engulfed the whole one end of the mill causing extensive damage.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
