A fire on the waterfront at Paper Excellence’s Catalyst paper mill caused excitement and consternation in Port Alberni on Friday, July 7.

A Seaspan barge containing hog fuel was being unloaded at the paper mill when a piece of equipment used in the process caught fire. Hog fuel is wood chips or byproduct used to burn as fuel, especially for biomass-fired power plants.
