Tioga County Lumber Mill Goes Up in Flames
No injuries are reported in a blaze that drew over a dozen fire companies to a Tioga County lumber mill.
A passerby called authorities after seeing flames at the Wagner Lumber Mill on Gaskill Road in Campville shortly before 3:30 a.m. February 16.
Firefighters from 17 companies from Tioga, Broome and Bradford counties were on the scene for over six hours and officials say they had to truck in water from near Lockheed Martin and the Owego Treadway Inn.
Officials say a huge structure housing lumber and equipment was destroyed but the mill’s office was not damaged.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
