A fire late Wednesday night completely destroyed one of the creative warming huts at The Forks.

Ha(y)ven was designed by a team of New York architects and was one of the winning designs unveiled in November.

The hut was located near the Scotiabank Stage and has been a popular attraction to anyone visiting The Forks. The silo-like structure features an interior warming area and small fire pit, with an open roof.

No word yet on the cause of the blaze, but damaged is pegged at about $5,000.
