A fire has destroyed a lobster packing plant in Richibucto Village.
The fire was first noticed at around 1:45 pm Thursday afternoon at the Cape Bald Packers processing plant.
The plant employed around 200 people seven days a week between May and December and 150 a few times a week the rest of the year.
Company officials say they hope to rebuild as quickly as possible.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
