This afternoon Alma Fire Department responded to an alarm at the Pictou County Wellness Centre.

Children exited the arena with gear on as the fire department looked for the source of smoke causing the alarm to sound. 

Alma Fire Chief Jack Ross said there was a small electrical fire of some kind in the mechanical room, but they were unable to find the source. Crews cleared the room, made sure the building was cleared and did some smoke ejection.

The room is being monitored at this time and has been turned over to the Wellness Centre again. Electricians will try to determine the cause and the source at a time to be determined according to Ross.

    John Brother Stadium doesn't have the issues this place does. Everything from the roof leaking, to the shotty drainage in the parking lot and now the electrical fire, and the list goes on. It goes to show that newer isn't always better. Had the funds been spent to give JBM the couple of things it needed instead of going with the bigger is better attitude, the Wellness Center woldn't be such a joke. Can't wait to see how far we end up in the hole after this latest event, as that place is nothing but a money pit and it hasn't even been open for a full year yet.
