NorSask Forest Products Ltd has provided an update on the cleanup efforts that are currently underway at their Meadow Lake sawmill after a fire that broke out on Saturday, March 27, 2021 destroyed two dry kilns. There were no reported injuries during the fire, and its cause is under investigation. Al Balisky, president and CEO of Meadow Lake Tribal Council (MLTC) Industrial Investments, which owns the mill, said that production has been paused at the sawmill while crews finish cleaning. He said work will get back to normal as soon as it is safe. Balisky commended the NorSask staff, employees, and maintenance contractors, along with the fire departments of Meadow Lake, Loon Lake, and Glaslyn — all who assisted in the fire suppression efforts.
