Sad news in this region .. the Cedar Creek Sawmill had a fire and with the high winds we had today they lost all their buildings and lumber.

This is the sawmill that I have used in the past and was going to approach for some donations for the big event in September.

I can’t imagine how the owner is feeling.

It is sad to see important businesses in an area suffer disasters like this.

I hate to hear of their loss. I hope they were insured and will be able to buy back enough equipment to be back in business soon.

We lost our local saw mill to the economy last year. I bought the antique, operating Corley 386 mill just to salvage it from the scrap yard. I have NO idea what I will do with it, but i saved it.

Debbie,

That’s heart-breaking. We hope Cedar Creek will be back in operation quickly and even better than before.
(Romans 8:28) We’re thankful there was no loss of life.

We’ve been under a weather fire alert since yesterday because of high winds, low humidity, and dry conditions. Winds are supposed to diminish tomorrow, but no rain in the immediate forecast.

I remember walking through their huge barn filled with the most beautiful wood… sad, sad…

Hunter—good for you!! I’m sure you will come up with something re: the machinery.

Sorry to hear this, MsDebbie. The loss of a small business is usually a terrible tragedy to the owners of a small business and I hope that they had the proper insurance and will somehow partially recover.

Here’s praying they were properly insured, and even with that, they will need help from the community getting back up to speed… If they come back online, be sure to buy from them, I am sure they will need the business.
