CKTB News- fire

An abandoned mill in Miramichi has been destroyed by fire.

The blaze broke out at the former Miramichi Lumber Products facility late Monday night.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

The mill shut down back in 2013 over Crown land timber allocations, resulting in the loss of approximately 115 jobs.

In 2015 the mill was damaged when fire broke out in an electrical room.
