Fire at the Britton Lumber Company

On Saturday, March 28, around 8:00-8:30pm a fire was seen and reported at the Britton Lumber Company sawmill. By 9pm it was a four alarm fire with fire crews from Fairlee, Newbury, Bradford, Hartford and Strafford VT, as well as Wentworth, Lyme, Warren, and Hanover NH all responding to the scene. Due to their quick response and hard work, the fire was contained to the sawmill but the steel, concrete and wood structure was a total loss. No one was hurt, which is the most important thing.

We are very fortunate to be in such a great community where fireman, neighbors, and employees arrived Saturday evening and Sunday to offer their help and expertise. We thank all of you for your support.

The sawmill was insured and there will be meetings with the insurance adjusters starting Monday morning. We will also hold employee meetings Monday morning and certainly more often in the next few weeks as we try to keep our loyal employees informed of next steps.

We are grateful for the many kind words and the outpouring of offers to help our Company during this difficult time.

While the fire is a setback to our manufacturing division, our warehouses and wholesale division are unaffected by the fire. We will continue to supply our customers' orders without delay. We have plenty of our Eastern Pine lumber in stock, and are producing more in our planermill today. We are here to serve your building material needs and we thank you for your business.
