Arson is being blamed as the cause of a fire that destroyed the J.A.R. Community Centre in Crane River, Manitoba.
Firefighters were called to the blaze at about 11:30 p.m. on Monday to find the building completely engulfed in flames.
A damage estimate isn’t available, but the centre won’t be able to be salvaged.
No one was in the building at the time and RCMP continue to investigate.
UPDATE: Monday, October 1, 2012 — Two male youths from Crane River First Nation, aged 14 and 15, have been charged with arson and will appear in Dauphin court on November 14.
