SPRINGFIELD, Ore. – The July 25 fire that raged through the Timber Products particleboard mill is being assessed to determine if future operations will be possible at the site. Until then, the Sutter Creek, Calif., facility will remain closed.
Timber Products said it is investigating the damage to the site to assess its options moving forward.
In a statement, the company said: "We are working closely with our employees during this indefinite closure to minimize the impacts to employees, including providing opportunities for employment at other Timber Products manufacturing facilities, working with local employment agencies, and providing connections to other local employers. We appreciate the outpouring of support from the local community for our employees."
