Fibre Problems

Posted on 27th May 2011 at 08:58

Longview Fire crews responded to the Longview Fibre Paper and Packaging millsite yesterday morning, after the facility suffered a major internal electrical problem. That was reported shortly after 11 am, shutting down the main electrical supply. Power to most of the mill was lost, along with the water supply pumps. Fire crews responded to provide backup to the mill’s safety crew, which did have to deal with a small boiler fire. It took about an hour to get the power restored, followed by the time needed to re-start the mill processes. The cause of the outage hasn’t been disclosed.
