REMER, Minn. (AP) — Fire has caused extensive damage to a lumber mill in northern Minnesota.
The fire at Remer (REE'-mir) Cut-Stock Lumber was reported to the Cass County sheriff's office around 8:45 p.m. Tuesday. Firefighters arrived to find the mill engulfed in flames.
Remer Fire Chief Paul Swentkofske tells WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/12OSKWQ ) that firefighters didn't leave the scene until 2 a.m. the next morning.
No one was hurt, but Swentkofske says 25 people worked at the business.
While he didn't call it a total loss, he says the fire warped the building's steel structural support.
The Remer Fire Department and the State Fire Marshal's office are investigating.
