A historic cabin on Lake Athapapuskow was destroyed by fire June 18.
The blaze at the cabin, located on an island near Paradise Lodge, was first reported in the early morning hours. While the fire was quickly extinguished, the damage was already complete.
“It’s gone. There’s nothing left but a fireplace, apparently,” said Carol MacLellan, co-owner of Paradise Lodge.
“One of our customers woke us up at 6:30 a.m. We called [Manitoba Sustainable Development] and they came and got it out.”
Paradise Lodge did not own or oversee the cabin.
“I think they said that it was 60 years old. It was part of Paradise at one time,” MacLellan said.
No injury or damage to other properties was reported in the fire. The cabin’s owners, which MacLellan described as a family from Minnesota, were not at the cabin at the time and had left the area nearly two weeks before the fire.
