One of the two victims of the Lakeland Mill Fire in Prince George was a past resident of Fort St. James.
Alan Little, 43, was a shift supervisor working at the mill when the explosion took place on April 23 at about 9:38 p.m., resulting in a fire.
Little was taken to the University of Hospital of Northern BC, but passed away hours later from his injuries.
Little lived in Fort St. James and worked at Stuart Lake Lumber, about 19 years ago. He was only in the community for about a year before moving to Prince George, but some of his family had remained in the community until recently.
A memorial service will be taking place on Saturday, April 28 at 2 p.m. at the Mennonite Church in Prince George.
Glen Francis Roche, 46, of Prince George, also died in the mill fire and 19 more workers were injured in the blast, five of whom were still in serious condition as of April 25.
