On Sunday night May 1, at about 11:15 p.m., a 911 call went out from Dustin Nason, boiler operator at Clark Lumber Company.

Nason reported a fire in the second story of the Boiler House and said that within 1 minute of the call, volunteers from the Willette Fire Department were on the scene.

They quickly extinguished the flames keeping the damage to a minimum. Brandon Clark stated “We are so very proud of our Willette Fire Department and the volunteers that make it happen.

“They have a layout of the buildings on the property and have trained here. What could have been hundreds of thousands of dollars of loss and months of downtime was held to only a few thousand dollars and 36 hours downtime.

“We want to say thank you to everyone involved and to recognize a job well done.”
