Lobster plant destroyed by fire

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.
