Fire Destroys Kilns At Kenora Forest Products

Posted on Saturday, December 30, 2017 06:27 AM

An overnight fire has gutted one of the buildings at Kenora Forest Products. 

Kenora Fire Chief Todd Skene says two drying kilns were fully engulfed in flames when they arrived around midnight. 

Nobody was injured. 

Skene explains they're letting the building containing the kilns burn itself out, noting the frigid temperatures make it inadvisable to put water on the flames.

Fire crews remain on scene. (Staff Photo)
