The Thompson Local News

The fire at the Interior Inn is now put out, but the investigation into the blaze is just starting.


City of Thompson Deputy Mayor Colleen Smook spoke to 102.9 CHTM with the latest on the situation yesterday on City Beat. She said that the scene, now that the fire has been extinguished, has been turned over to the Office of the Fire Commissioner. The investigaiton is ongoing by the Fire Commissioner, with support from Thompson Fire and Emergency Services as well as the RCMP.


Deputy Mayor Smook added that even though the flames may be out from the New Years Day fire at the Interior Inn, City crews are still working hard to clean up the water run-off along Riverside Drive. Smook said that the intersection of Riverside Drive and Nickel Road is still closed, and asked everyone to respect the barricade regardless of position. She said that if one person drives around a barricade, others will follow.


Work is expected to continue to clear the area of water, ice and slush over the next week.


If you'd like more informaiton or have any questions on the work being done to clear the area, you can call the City of Thompson Public Works Department at 204.677.7970.


City Beat is a weekly program on 102.9 CHTM and Shaw TV Thompson, airing live every Thursday at 11:30am on 102.9 CHTM. If you have a question you'd like answered by the Mayor (or a representative from City Hall), you can email it to CHTMNEWS@ARCTICRADIO.CA
