Fire destroys Bangor Sawmill Museum in Digby County

By Kevin Northup Jun 8, 2024 | 10:11 AM

There’s nothing left of the Bangor Sawmill Museum after an early morning fire in Digby County.

Firefighters were called to the scene just after 4 a.m. Saturday in Meteghan River.

Meteghan fire chief Kevin Saulnier says it was fully engulfed when they arrived.

No injuries were reported, and the cause is under investigation.

After the fire was put out, the remains of the building had to be torn down for safety reasons.

Saulnier says four other fire departments provided mutual aid, Salmon River, Little Brook, St Bernard and Southville.

He says they are all volunteers, up to 100 people were on scene at one point.

The Bangor Sawmill Museum was a restored 19th century water-powered-turbine lumber sawmill.
