His­toric Western Bay build­ing razed by fire

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

A fire deemed sus­pi­cious by po­lice com­pletely de­stroyed a nearly 140-year-old wooden struc­ture in Western Bay last week. It was also a ma­jor set­back to the North Shore Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Board, which was ren­o­vat­ing the one-time Methodist church. Au­thor­i­ties are look­ing for the pub­lic’s help to de­ter­mine who caused the fire.
