Seniors centre up in flames

A Maple Ridge seniors centre was destroyed by a massive fire Thursday morning, the second fire to hit the building in a month.

Fire crews arrived at Kanaka Creek Lodge at 256 Street and 116th Avenue at 5:45 a.m. to find the building fully engulfed in flames.

Additional resources were called in from Mission due to the size of the fire.

The building was not occupied Thursday because of a previous fire that burned the seniors centre on January 9.

The cause of Thursday’s fire has not yet been determined, but neighbours told CTV January’s fire was not considered suspicious.
