Grassfires in La Loche


A grass fire in La Loche claimed the old pool hall across from Ducharme School last week. The building was built in the 1950s (possibly by Robbie Fontaine).  This picture was taken last year. In the spring every year dozens of grass fires threaten the community.

  
The building next door shows signs of fire damage.
The building was built out of logs which were later covered with sheets of chipboard and had a shake roof.
