Miscou fish plant destroyed by fire will be rebuilt, owner says

The owner of a fish plant on Miscou island says he plans to rebuild after fire destroyed the facility last week.

Miscou Fish Products had just reopened following extensive renovations when fire broke out early last Thursday.

Approximately 100 people worked there and the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.

Other processing plants in the area have offered work to some of affected employees for the remainder of the season.
