A fire has damaged a closed sawmill in Fremont County in eastern Idaho.

North Fremont Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Keith Richey says the fire occurred Thursday night at Fisher Logging in the small community of Marysville, which is near Ashton.

Richey tells KIDK-TV that the fire burned stacks of firewood and timber, causing an estimated $250,000 in damage.

Richey says there were reports of downed power lines in the area before the fire, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The sawmill had not operated for the past six months.
