No, not the country.
Last night, Del Paso’s historic ice rink was lost in a five alarm fire. Fortunately, no injuries are reported and firefighters were able to keep the fire from engulfing any neighboring businesses.
Skating enthusiasts still have local rinks in Folsom, Roseville and Elk Grove, but Sacramento will feel a little less civilized without our own spot. The building was not insured and I cannot imagine that a new ice rink would be profitable unless it is attached to a larger project, such as a new sports arena.

Sac Fire Dept is calling it arson!
There will be a group of volunteers cleaning up this Sunday.

A few more details on the arson angle…
I’m sure they are not connected.
