CENTRALIA, Wash. (AP) — The Lewis County sheriff's office says a worker killed at a Centralia lumber mill was caught in a conveyor.
Workers at Sierra Pacific Industries told deputies they saw the man Thursday trying to free a piece of lumber that had turned sideways. He apparently slipped and became pinned in the machinery.
Workers were attempting to use a blowtorch to cut him out when the 32-year-old Longview-area man was declared dead.
