End of an era in Pinantan lake after fire destroys local store
Thursday, April 17th, 2014 | 5:33pm PDT

It's the end of an era in Pinantan Lake. The tiny community's general store burned to the ground overnight. Cory George has owned the store for the past four years. George says he is insured and is planning to rebuild the store. RCMP Staff Sergeant Doug Aird says the tenant living in a suite at the back of the store noticed smoke coming from the basement. The renter checked the furnace room, and Aird says the room was engulfed in flames. He says the fire apparently spread very quickly.No one was injured in the fire - and a cause hasn't been determined. Cindy Rutsatz lives across the street. She was still being interrupted by the sounds of exploding bottles as she spoke to our CFJC News crew this morning. Pinantan Lake is outside of any fire protection area - and local resident Nadeen Locke says that's a difficult situation to be in.The provincial fire commisioner's office is expected to investigate.
