Tolko’s Lakeview Mill to resume operations after fire

Nov. 6, 2017 - Tolko Industry Ltd's Lakeview Mill in William's Lake, B.C. was shutdown over the weekend after a fire broke out at the sawmill on Thursday.

The fire was declared officially extinguished on Friday. There were no injuries.

Tolko said in a release on Friday that structural engineers were to be on site assessing the fire damage on Saturday. "When we have a better understanding of the impact, we can begin to develop a recovery plan to return the sawmill to full operations," Tolko said.

A Tolko representative told CFI on Monday afternoon EST that efforts are still underway to get operations back in order and to get the planer running again.
