People of Burns Lake mark one year since deadly sawmill fire

It’s the one year anniversary of the mill explosion that killed two men and put the economic future of Burns Lake at risk.

Burns Lake Mayor Luke Strimbold says a service Sunday is to remember Robert Luggi Jr. and Carl Charlie, and be there for those who were injured in the blast.

“We as a community are coming together to provide support to one another, as well as part of the process is grieving together and that’s a part of our healing journey.”

The B-shift crew working the night of the fire, members of the victims families and representatives from the mill’s ownership company will speak at the ceremony.
