Smithers RCMP are investigating after an attempted arson at a local mill Sunday night.
Mounties were called to West Fraser’s Pacific Inland Resources operation on Tatlow Road by the sawmill Superintendent at about 11:15.
Investigators found that a fire was intentionally set in the main structure of the operation by someone using flammable liquids.
Damages are described as very minimal and the flames were put out by night shift employees.
RCMP say the area has been closed off while police examine the scene.
The mill is scheduled to resume operations sometime late Monday.
