Investigation continues

A precise cause of the fire that destroyed the Palmour Tavern in Porcupine has not been determined, but two investigators from the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office are today inspecting the scene of Thursday’s fire to get a better idea of what it might be. On Thursday, Timmins Fire Chief Mike Pintar said he suspected the fire began as the result of a problem with an electrical panel. There is no indication to believe the fire is anything but accidental, but the fire marshal investigators are always called whenever there is a fire with a significant amount of damage. The fire scene has been taped off, but that hasn’t stopped dozens of area residents from dropping by to check out the damage on their own. (click on photos to enlarge)
