On April 29, 1922, workers were welding spouts to the new shaking screens when a stray piece of molten metal set fire to a partition wall. Within a half hour the screen house, bins, conveyor galleries and the 72 inch roll house had been destroyed. It took only 50 working days to re-build these structures and return Canada Crushed Stone Corp. to full operation.
