An absolutely devastating scene in Prince George, at Lakeland mills where a massive explosion and fire last night has taken the life of 1 person and horrifically burned many others. My heart jumped when I read the scan bc report sent by a friend, since I have family working at another mill in PG, but not this one. I was actually down by this mill while I was in PG, very busy place and a lot of wood going through. All I can say is my heart is with those men and families this morning and I know the people of P.G. will help each other get through this. My deepest condolences and thoughts are with all of you today. We can replace mills and buildings, we can’t replace a human life. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2012/04/24/bc-prince-george-mill-fire.html
