Mill Fire 

Firefighters responded to a report of a fire at the Gardner Chip Mill off route 116 in Chester Friday.When crews arrived on the scene, black smoke could be seen pouring out from multiple sides of the building and flames were visible in several areas.According to Deputy Fire Chief Hervey Clay, the high winds complicated their efforts.Fire crews from Mattawamkeag, Lee, Howland, Passadumkeag, Burlington, East Millinocket and Medway were called in to help Lincoln crews put out the fire.The cause has not yet determined, but authorities say it isn’t uncommon for the machinery in the areas that caught fire to throw sparks.
