Explosion in Halifax County, 1920

Family legend has it that my great-grandfather, Beverley Oscar Burton, was one of several men who died in a boiler explosion in Halifax County. I do know he was a sawyer and he died on 30 July 1920, so I've been searching unsuccessfully for a sawmill explosion in July of 1920. Does anyone know anything about this explosion or where I could find more information? (The internet search engine keeps returning stories about a ship exploding in a harbor in Nova Scotia.)
