Fire Destroys Grassy Plains Country Store

It provided relief during the 2018 wildfires south of Burns Lake -- and has been a community hub for decades -- but today the Grassy Plains Country Store and Restaurant is in ruins, after being destroyed by fire yesterday.

The fire also destroyed an apartment on the second floor of the building, forcing a single mother and her two children out of their home.

No injuries have been reported.

"Go Fund Me" pages have been set up (links below) to raise funds for both the store and the family living in the upstairs apartment.
