Fire officials are now saying that the fire that caused $200,000 in damage to Herwynen sawmill is considered suspicious.

The sawmill fire broke out early Wednesday morning on 6th Line off Wellington Road 22 near Fergus.

Two full stacks of hardwood were ablaze when crews from five fire detachments arrived at the mill.

Crews closed roadways in the area to allow water tankers to quickly get to the scene.

No one was injured in the fire and the cause is still under investigation. Wellington OPP are asking anyone with information to contact them.
