Delta Fire Department

The Delta Fire Department was called on to fight a fire at a local lumber mill early this morning after a fire broke out at the Delta Cedar Products mill on the Fraser River side of river road. Fire crews worked hard to contain the main blaze and successfully held it to the area of origin while they extinguished 'hot spots' throughout the facilty.

The mill was in operation when the fire broke out around 2am. Two workers have been taken to hospital after suffering smoke inhalation.  No other injuries are reported at this time.

The Delta Police Department assisted the operation to divert traffic around the fire scene as River Road between Nordel and Centre Street were closed for the morning commuter traffic and remained closed for most of the morning.

It is unclear what the extent of the damage is and how it will affect the future of the mill.
