You can see a video of the fire and more information here:
How does this affect the lumber industry? Well, we are already seeing the effects in rising pricing. As stated by www.Kezi.com, there has already been quite the increase in plywood prices, jumping up to a rise of 10-12%. This impact was seen almost immediately, in large because this mill supplies 2% of North America. The main lumber they produce is sheathing and sanded plywood.
By, the good news is that prices are anticipated to return to normal in approximately 45-60 days (www.kezi.com).
We send positive thoughts to those that have been affected by this fire......
