FAIRLEE, Vt. (AP) - Investigators say they’re unable to determine the cause of a fire that destroyed a lumber company’s sawmill last month, but they don’t consider the fire to be suspicious.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1IFneQu) the sawmill at Britton Lumber Company in Fairlee was in operation until about 1 p.m. on March 27. The fire was first noticed the next evening.

Britton’s insurance company has brought in an engineering firm to further investigate.

The company’s sawmill employs 20 workers and at least another dozen employees’ jobs are based on the sawmill’s production.

The company is still selling lumber that had already been processed through the sawmill.
