CHOCTAW CO., Miss. – (WCBI)Excessive heat is being blamed for a large fire at a Choctaw County sawmill.

Fire investigators returned to the Backwoods Tie and Timber just south of Eupora Monday, where the weekend fire continues to smolder.

Authorities believe that combustion sparked the fire at the sawmill, located on Highway 9.

Thankfully, there were no injuries and all of the equipment was saved.

It took eight fire departments from Choctaw and Webster Counties to get control of the blaze that broke out late Saturday night.
