Temiskaming First Nation’s Arena Goes Up In Flames


Shock and  sadness after the Temiskaming First Nation’s arena and community centre burned to the ground over the weekend.

At first, the roof collapsed but then a fire broke out several hours later and caused extensive damage.

The fire has been ruled electrical although power had been turned off to the building several hours before the blaze broke out.

The investigation is on going.

The facility had grown from an out door rink to a multi purpose facility over the last few years through hard work and lot’s of fundraising.
