TEMISCAMING, QUE. — A fire at Tembec’s high yield pulp mill in Chetwynd, B.C., on June 30 caused no injuries, but the mill was expected to be out of service for 14 to 18 days.

The damage is primarily concentrated in the log storage and chip pile area. There was also some damage to the scales, chip receiving and unloading equipment, chip conveyors, and related electrical services. Assessments by mill personnel and out-side resources have indicated that damage to the pulp production area of the mill is relatively minor. In terms of direct loss, it is estimated that roughly 40,000 cubic metres of fibre (chips and logs) were destroyed.
