The Saskatoon Police Service is correcting a previous news release which said the fire on Alberta Avenue was being investigated as a possible arson. The SPS says that is not the case because the cause of the fire hasn't yet been determined. The investigation continues by the Saskatoon Fire Department and the Police Service. The Fire Department estimates the damage at $2-million.
There were traffic restrictions Tuesday morning from around 5:30 on 'til later in the afternoon around 33rd Street and Idylwyld as firefighters battled the fire at the Saskatoon Events Centre in the 1200 block of Alberta Avenue, just east of Idylwyld.
