At approximately 8:26 am this morning, Delta Fire & Emergency crews were dispatched to a fire in a shaving bunker (dust collection silo) at Acorn Forest Products on Alaska Way in North Delta. Upon arrival, thick black smoke was observed coming from the bunker.
By 11:30 am, crews extinguished the fire, having worked very hard to confine this complex fire and prevent it from spreading to nearby adjoining buildings and wood piles. They are currently in the process of salvage and overhaul and will remain on scene.
A Fire Investigator has been deployed to the scene. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
