Fire at the Trail Legion last night

RCMP are investigating a fire at the Trail Legion last night.

Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire rescue was called out just before 9, and had the fire under control a half hour later.

Firefighters were met with heavy fire on the outside of the building as well as multiple venting propane tanks.

Fortunately the fire doors on the building held the blaze from getting inside the structure.

There was smoke damage inside the building and moderate damage to the outside of the building.

In all 18 firefighters responded.

So far no word on the cause.
