Fire has destroyed the only bar in Lafleche, Sask.
The Flying Goose Inn caught fire around 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Fire crews were called in from several neighbouring communities.
Evelyn L'Heureux, who owns the bar with her husband Larry, said when she showed up after getting a call about the fire, there was smoke but it didn't look too serious.
"The Lafleche fire department was there, and then as it progressed, Larry decided that we should call in the Kincaid fire department and Gravelbourg," she said. "Basically after that, it burned."
The hotel included a tavern and restaurant. A more recently built motel close to the three-storey building was not destroyed.
Officials haven't said what might have caused the fire.
Lafleche, a town of about 370 residents, is 135 kilometres southwest of Moose Jaw.
