collapsed shortly after the fire broke down. The charming building has been vacant since the roller rink closed last year, but the people there were just waiting for the next creative tenant to make it shine. Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire and have not yet determined a motive for the blaze. The rink has a spectacular history in this little town. It started as a dance hall and later became a roller rink. After many successful years, it closed down for very sad reasons.

Though the officials stated that there are no injuries and there is nothing to worry about. They haven’t received any loff of life. However, they are still searching for the cause of the fire and they have started investigating it. The owners of the former roller rink have, in a statement on Facebook, said that they were deeply saddened by the loss of the building that was home to their business over the last few years. As many remember, the “Just for Fun” roller rink was the place to skate back in their day.
