A mill in North Plains was damaged by two fires Saturday morning.

The first fire was in a small building next to the large mill. The building was destroyed.

Firefighters remained on scene putting out hot spots.

Then, Saturday afternoon, a fire started in a large hopper containing sawdust.

The fire spread to a trailer that was under the hopper. Crews moved the trailer and doused the sawdust with water.

The first fire was caused by an electrical problem. The cause of the hopper fire remains under investigation.

No one was hurt in the fires.
