FOREST GROVE, Ore. – Two mill workers were examined for smoke inhalation injuries after a fire at the Stimson Lumber Mill Sunday morning.

The fire was reported Sunday morning at the Gaston-area mill on Southwest Scoggins Valley Road.

The mill’s sprinkler system went off and kept the fire from spreading, Forest Grove Fire spokesperson Matt Johnson said.

No word from officials on whether there was any significant damage to the mill.

The two mill workers weren’t taken to the hospital, Johnson said.
