A fire has destroyed much of Crystal Lake Hatchery in Petersburg.
According to various accounts, the March 4 fire destroyed 40 percent of the hatchery's Chinook salmon eggs and caused almost $700,000 in damage to the Southern Southeast Regional Aquaculture Association facility.
No one was injured in the fire that also consumed 200,000 coho eggs.
In a statement to KTUU-TV, SRAA production manager Bill Gass said the aquaculture association intends to rebuild.
