A Surrey, B.C., mill that processes cedar products was destroyed in a fire early Saturday morning.

Firefighters were called just before 2 a.m. PT about the fire at Fraserview Cedar Products mill at 144th Street at 65th Avenue.

Assistant Fire Chief Brian Woznikoski says the buildings appear to be a total loss.

Woznikosi says the fire was contained within the first hour of firefighters arriving but, it was too late to save much.

“I would say the buildings look like they’re not salvageable at this time but further investigation will take place over the next few days,” Woznikoski says.

There were no injuries and the cause is still under investigation
