A structure fire in Delta raged on Wednesday morning, near the Fraser River, east of the Alex Fraser Bridge.

Fire crews descended on a mill on Alaska Way at just before 9 a.m. Wednesday as a cedar mill caught fire.

At about 8:25 a.m., Delta fire crews were dispatched to the dust collection silo at Acorn Forest Products on Alaska Way in North Delta.

When they arrived, thick black smoke was billowing from a bunker.

By 11:30 a.m., the fire was extinguished.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, investigators say.
