Sawmill Fire 

Fire crews were called to the Johnson Sawmill on Whitten Road just after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, but were unable to save it.

Owner Bob Johnson estimated the loss at $300,000. He believes the blaze might have been ignited by a spark from a generator.

It was the second fire in recent years at the mill. Johnson said a fire in 2002 burned the business to the ground.
