Sawmill Fire

Fire destroyed a sawmill in Marysville, ID, on Thursday night.
The fire was burning in stacks of firewood and timber at Fisher Logging near Ashton. Firefighters were able to protect other buildings. Damage was estimated at US$250,000.
The sawmill had not operated for past six months, but there were 10-foot-high piles of sawdust on the ground.
Several spot fires were started on nearby grassland as a result of the fire.
Temperatures were so hot that firefighters were rotated through ambulances.
The state fire marshal is on his way to the fire and determine the exact cause.
