They are now saying one fatality.
I don't wish harm on anyone, and i hope none of our friends on the board are involved in this awfull fire either.
Seems to be a lot of these explosions and fires lately.

The guy next door is one of the 3 in vancover . He has 2nd and 3rd degree burns. My wife took his wife to airport this afternoon. She did not even know how bad he is. I guess it is hard to give out info when you have that amount hurt. The mill is paying for all cost for the familys to go down and stay with them.

That is so hard. I sincerely hope that he will be okay. I am a 3rd degree burn surviver myself. It's a long road of healing. Most people think that 1st. degree burns are the worst but 2nd is deeper than 1st and 3rd is all the way and of course the worst. VGH has an excellent burn unit and he will get the best care available there. Hugs and best wishes to his wife. She will need support through this too.

Thought and prayers go out to all involved. There is no horror more painful than burns.

You are right, Brian......we are all kinda holding back and waiting and watching. That mill has a history with me....several friends used to work there and for about 30 years, the local PG Alpine Ski team has cut firewood there for deliveries in the fall as a fundraiser. Have spent many a weekend
in the log yard splitting and loading wood. The mill would organize Birch to be hauled in from logging sites. Very cooperative.
I always told visitors to the city that the mill should have been featured in Better Homes and Gardens magazine. It was always tidy and pristine and is surrounded by manicured grass and nice trees. Not a thing out of place.....
even the log yard piles are neat and tidy and organized..
It was featured in a Discovery Channel ( I think) documentary about 6-8 years ago and was called "Lakeland Blues" because the finished lumber ends were painted blue and a segment of the US market preferred this product.
