Fires Destroy Two Scotch Creek Commercial Buildings
By Jo Anne Malpass
Two unrelated afternoon fires in commercial buildings, both in the 3900 block of Scotch Creek, kept local fire fighters busy in May. The first one was on May 3 and is under investigation by Chase RCMP. The fire in the commercial building, where the Mighty Buck Dollar Store was located, was made more difficult for local fire departments because they couldn’t determine where the fire was burning. Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Fire Chief Mike Engholm said entrance to the building was blocked so they switched tactics and attacked it from the exterior. An adjoining open storage building was saved but the main building was destroyed.
