Oct. 9: Three Workers Injured in Mill Explosion


Three mill workers were injured in a fire and explosion at a wood pellet plant, which was the site of a less serious explosion two years ago and was fined in May 2014 for “repeated” safety violations. The fire and explosion started in a drying machine during a maintenance shutdown. One worker suffered serious injuries; the other two received minor ones. The mill and WorkSafeBC are investigating.
