Wildfires shut down mill

Norbord Inc. says it has temporarily suspended production as an oriented strand board mill in northern Alberta due to wildfires in the region.

The company says it stopped production at the mill in High Level, Alta., to comply with evacuation orders in the town.

All non-essential mill employees have left and the mill was secure at the time of evacuation, Norbord says.

The High Level mill has an annual production capacity of 860 million square feet and has been ramping up toward full production since resuming operations in late 2013.

High Level is approximately 400 kilometres west of Fort McMurray, Alta.

Norbord has 17 plants in the United States, Canada and Europe.
