BATTLEFORD — The Battleford Fire Department was called out to a blaze early Sunday morning on the Flats where a building was fully engulfed.
Firefighters were wetting down nearby trees just before 8 a.m.
The building has been used for numerous purposes over the years and was most recently being used as a woodworking shop.
It was originally a gas station and restaurant owned by Fred Light, benefactor of the Fred Light Museum. (See the photo)
It also served for a time in the 1980s as the newsroom for the Battleford Telegraph, a newspaper published by Bill Warwick of Turner-Warwick Printers.
More to come.
