One person is dead, police confirm, after an explosion at the recently re-opened Terrace Bay Pulp Mill.
Two others were taken to hospital, but not admitted, an OPP spokesperson told Thunder Bay Television on Monday night.
"Today, at approximately 4:45 p.m. Schreiber Ontario Provincial Police received a call of an explosion at the Terrace Bay Pulp Inc. Mill, in Terrace Bay, Ont. Police attended and one person has been declared deceased as a result of injuries and two others were taken to MacAusland Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries," said Const. Carol Michtics, a community services officer with the Nipigon Detachment of the OPP.
The incident is being investigated by the Ontario Fire Marshal's office, the coroner's office, the Ministry of Labour and the OPP's North West Crime Unit.
The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The cause of the explosion is unkown at this time.
"It's still under investigation," Michtics said, adding the mill is closed, but she wasn't sure how long the closure would be.
The mill, owned by the Buchanan Forest Products, re-opened last November after spending 19 months in creditor protection.
At the time of the March 2009 closure, the mill employed 385 people. The mill produces finer-type papers such as those used for tissues, feminine products and diapers.
The province provided a $25-million loan guarantee to ensure the plant would re-open.
