A major fire at Maple Ridge’s Fraser Cedar Products owned by Baljinder Singh Gill caused significant damage and more than 60 workers are facing lay-offs. But Gill told the media that he would try and start the mill as soon as possible.

This is the second fire at the mill in the past year. It was spotted around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday by drivers on Lougheed Highway. Maple Ridge firefighters had to get help from Mission firefighters to get the fire under control.

The fire is under investigation and its cause is not considered suspicious. No one was injured.
