Pembine Train Depot a Total Loss After Fire Monday
06/18/2019- Two teenagers are in custody following a fire that destroyed the Pembine train depot yesterday. The blaze broke out just before 11:00 AM and the over 130-year-old building was quickly engulfed in flames. A 14- and a 16-year-old boy, both from the Pembine area, were arrested, but no information has been released about them or their involvement in the fire. The fire also burned a nearby electric pole, causing the wire to fall onto Highway 141 and the roadway had to be shut down between Highway 8 westbound and County Road R for a short period. No injuries were reported and the incident remains under investigation.
