Caygeon Lanes Burns
Fire-fighters from Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Dunsford and Emily were on the scene (June 2) at Caygeon Lanes, as it burned into the night.
A man identifying himself as one of the owners, Reg Dewhurst said, “I had just sent all the girls home. I was in the kitchen and the smoke alarm went off. The fire was not in the kitchen.” Station Three from Bobcaygeon was the first to respond, arriving just after 7:30 p.m.
The other halls were called out right away. ”We were the first here,” said a station three fire-fighter. “It was hot in there.”
The cause of the fire is not yet determined; originally it was thought to have been electrical in origin. “There will be an investigation, as to the cause; that’s standard,” said a retired fire-fighter from Toronto, who stopped to see the fire while on his way home.
An off-duty fire fighter from another department showed up when he heard the pages going out on his radio. ”They have to cut through the roof to ventilate the building so they can get in,” he explained as the aerial truck lowered four fire fighters towards the roof at the front of the building.
As smoke and embers from the fire began to blow towards homes on Cedartree Lane, some residents were evacuated as a precaution.
Four hours into the battle, fire fighters were told to “surround and drown”. ”We’ll be here to four in the morning,” said one firefighter, who had taken a break to get a cold drink from the Burnt River food truck.
“It’s so unreal. It’s so sad,” said Donna Hamilton. ”I’ve spent so many hours in that building. I’ve been bowling here for 15 years”.
The building housed a bowling alley, restaurant, rental hall and drive-thru. Damages are expected to be about $1 million.
