Last Lumber Mill To Close In Fort Bragg

It´s the end of an era on the North Coast. This summer, the last lumber mill in Fort Bragg will close its doors.

Mendocino Forest Products says it will shut the 52-year-old mill August 1st. Some 59 employees will lose their jobs. The company´s president says the mill is a victim of declining supplies and the difficulty of finding timber at affordable prices.
