Having lived in the Flathead for 7 years, Plum Creek has been a long standing company name and employer of friends and family of mine. Hearing yesterday that the mill in Columbia Falls, MT had exploded made my heart sink. 

Thank God nobody was hurt, residents of Columbia Falls and workers said they heard 3 loud explosion and then smoke billowing out of the mill. Everyone is accounted for and just minor injuries were suffered by a couple employees. Officials with Plum Creek are still unsure what happened. All that matters is everyone is safe and they take care of the unsafe issue which has risen.
