Fire erupts at sawmill building on Ridge Road, generates considerable smoke
A cloud of hazy smoke blankets the air after emergency personnel from the Wellington City Fire Department extinguished a relatively minor blaze at the main building at the sawmill on Ridge Road about 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday. According to department representatives, it appeared that the fire started in the planer area of the shop where some hydralic fluid had been spilled and several workmen were welding. While the fire generated a lot of smoke at the scene, there wasn't a great deal of flames apparent from the outside of the building. The investigation into the Jan. 22 incident continues.
