Salvation Army Centre hit by fire

Operations for the homaeless at the Salvation Army Centre on North Cumberland are back to normal after a Monday fire. Executive Director Merv Halvorsen says the blaze broke out in the laundry room of the basement in a dryer.  Halvorsen says half the food supply at the centre was lost as a result of the smoke damage. He says the laundry is now being contracted out everyday.  No one was hurt.
