Fire has destroyed a major lobster processing plant on Deer Island in southern New Brunswick Thursday.
According to Canadian Press, the Paturel International facility employs about 100 employees and had been busy processing lobster from Maine, says Fisheries Minister Rick Doucet.
The plant ships whole lobster and lobster products around the world.
Doucet says the provincial government will do whatever it can to help the employees and the company.
