A fire has destroyed the W.F. Tompkins and Sons mill in Bath, NB., following four hours of firefighters battling the flames. This is the third mill fire to take place in New Brunswick within one week.

Following a call to firefighters at 10:30 p.m., firefighters arrived to find the mill engulfed in flames, says fire Chief Stephen Armour.

“It was a lot of water to get the fire contained,” Armour told the CBC.

“We had spot fires flare up from the fire itself and other areas where sparks were dropping down into the grass.”
