Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club Fire

Mayor Cecil Clarke

Sadly, it's official, the 112 year old Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club has been destroyed by fire.

Early reports have people claiming to have heard a loud bang, felt a rush of heat and turned to notice smoke billowing from the bottom of the building soon to be followed by flaming licking out of the windows.

We're reached CBRM Mayor, Cecil Clarke for an update, he's been in touch with CBRM Police Chief Peter McIsaac and Fire Services Chief Bernie MacKinnon.
