A historic building has been completely destroyed by fire in the community of Kamsack, Saskatchewan. The Woodlander Hotel and Liquour Store was built in 1912 and a restaurant was added in 1960.

Kamsack Town Administrator Barry Hvidston, says 16 Kamsack firefighters and volunteer firefighters from surrounding areas responded to the fire around 11:15 p.m. Friday. One of the walls of the building collapsed around 2 a.m.

First responders quickly realized that they were not going to be able to save the building and made efforts to prevent the fire from spreading to others surrounding buildings.

Without their efforts, the fire would have spread and could have destroyed other buildings, says Barry Hvidston.

Firefighters remained at the scene of the fire until 2:30 p.m. Saturday, but are continuing to monitor the situation closely.

No injuries or deaths linked to this fire have been reported, confirms Barry Hvidston.

He adds that an investigation has been opened to shed light on the causes of the fire.

Barry Hvidston, however, says the community is devastated to have lost this historic building.

This building was a fixture on the Kamsack landscape for the last 111 years and it's sad to see him go, he says.
