Fire destroyed a saw mill in Charlotteville, Schoharie County Tuesday afternoon.

The Fire chief tells NEWS 10 the call came in around 4pm.

Arriving crews encountered heavy fire and smoke, prompting calls for mutual aid from several fire companies.

A short in a motor sparked and caught some saw dust on fire, spreading to the building.

The lumber in the building and a tin roof on the building made fighting the fire more difficult, the Chief said.

One person sustained a minor burn to the hand.
