THUNDER BAY — Thunder Bay firefighters and four pumper trucks responded Wednesday morning to what a spokesperson called a "stubborn" fire that heavily damaged a large piece of equipment in the Resolute sawmill wood yard.

No one was injured. The blaze broke out in a Cat M325 vehicle which is used for lifting and moving logs at the mill on Darrel Avenue.
