Emergency services personnel from Madawaska were the first to arrive on the scene followed by crews from Frenchville and Grand Isle.

Multiple calls Monday and Tuesday to the mill and Madawaska Fire Department to determine the cause of the fire were not returned. It did appear Monday, however, that operations were back to normal at the mill.
