By Matthew McCully – A fire on Tuesday morning did severe damage to the building housing the senior lounge at the North Hatley Club, located at 170 Main Street in North Hatley. According to Éric Richard, Director of the Régie intermunicipale de prévention et de protection incendie Memphrémagog Est, a passerby saw smoke coming from the building and called 911 at 9:41 a.m. The North Hatley and Ayer’s Cliff stations responded to the call. Richard said that when teams arrived on the scene, fire and smoke was already visible on the back of the building, and wind was feeding the flames, which had reached the second floor before the intervention even began.
