HH mayor calls hotel fire a "major blow" to the community

Hudson’s Hope mayor Lenore Harwood is calling the destruction of the Peace Glen Hotel by fire a “major blow” to the community.

Harwood, who says she hasn’t yet spoken to the owners of the hotel, said the hotel’s pub was a major source of food, beverages and social connection. She added that in recent years, the owners of the hotel had worked hard to improve the pub through renovating the building and bringing in live performances.

Harwood says for her, today’s fire recalls the devastation she felt the morning that the community’s Health Unit burned down in 1995.

Witnesses say they began to see smoke rising from the roof of the pub’s kitchen area between 11am and noon today. Damage to the structure was severe.
The hotel’s owners have not yet indicated whether they plan to rebuild.
