An equipment malfunction is likely responsible for a fire that destroyed an electricity co-generation turbine at Vaagen Bros. Lumber in Colville, Washington on November 18, 2009. The blaze caused in excess of $1 million in damage and puts upwards of 20 employees out of work. The co-generation capability, which supplied three megawatts to the electrical grid, will take one to two years to rebuild said Russ Vaagen, company vice president.
