Corner Brook Fire Department Called to Mill Fire

Posted by on Sunday, July 23, 2017

At pulp and paper mills fires are common.

Residents in Corner Brook, NL know when the whistle sounds, outside of the 8 am and 4 pm weekday times, there is a fire.

Typically the fires are put out in short order.

Today at the Corner Brook Pulp and Parer Mill they had to call in the Corner Brook Fire Department.

As of 4:30 crews were still on scene.

The whistle went off around 3:00 pm.

A paper mill has several high-risk areas where a fire or an explosion can occur. Problem areas in a pulp factory are typically flash dryers and slab presses.
