FAIRLEE, Vt. (AP) - Investigators are trying to figure out what started a fire that damaged a lumber mill in Fairlee, Vermont.

The fire on Saturday destroyed the sawmill at the Britton Lumber Company, which has been in business for nearly 70 years. Sheds containing wood survived the fire.

Vermont State Police Det. Sgt. David Sutton tells WCAX-TV (https://bit.ly/1I08n69) the cause and origin are not known, but he says investigators are beginning to rule areas out.

No injuries were reported. The business employs about 60 people.
