Fire Destroys Orangeville Restaurant
The popular Creekside Family Restaurant... on Nor – Pole Road just north of Orangeville on SR 487... is no more. The eatery was destroyed by a fire of an undetermined origin. The flames were discovered shortly after 3 O'clock Sunday morning. Orangeville Fire Chief Kevin Boyd says when he rolled up to the scene he saw flames shooting through the roof of the metal - sided building. Orangeville firemen got help in squelching the flames from across the region... especially when it came to tankers. At least a dozen were called in to shuttle water from nearby creeks to the scene. Chief Boyd said he plans to call in a state police fire marshal to figure out what started the blaze at the Creekside Family Restaurant near Orangeville.
