Atwood Resources hit by fire again

Atwood Resources was hit by another fire this week while workers were building the new roof for the facility that burned down about a year ago.

Owner David Smith says this fire was contained to the upper level, but until he hears from his insurers, he won’t know whether he can service farmers with deadstock needing removal.

He earlier alerted them that they will either have to stockpile their deadstock until he gets the plant up and running or find an alternative.

The insurer had provided a subsidy to move the deadstock to an Ottawa Valley facility while reconstruction was underway.
