A 63-year-old curling club building in Stony Plain, home to 220 curling club members and seven leagues, was destroyed by fire Wednesday night.
The fire broke out at the Westridge Curling Club at approximately 6 p.m. A news release from the Town of Stony Plain said the fire was deeply seated inside the structure and spread rapidly across the roof.
Fire crews on the scene said the building will not be recovered.
“The building was unoccupied and we have no injuries to report,” said Stony Plain Fire Chief Trevor Mistal. “Six fire trucks and 24 firefighters from the Stony Plain Fire Department and the Spruce Grove Fire Services are on the scene.”
An investigation will be carried out after the fire is contained. Further details are not available at this time and updates will be provided as fire operations are completed.
