CRESWELL, Ore. (AP) - Fire damaged a mill in Creswell, Oregon.

The Register-Guard reports an office and warehouse at Creswell Forest Products caught fire Sunday night, sending flames high into the night sky. The fire also torched a 40- to 50-foot evergreen tree, but large stacks of lumber remained unscathed.

No one was in the building when the fire started.

South Lane Fire and Rescue said the cause of the fire remains under investigation. According to a neighbor, several teens recently tried to set the mill ablaze.

The mill is next to a newer residential neighborhood of both single-family houses and apartments.
