Iron Bridge In Lindsay Has Reopened After Being Damaged By Fire In April

KAWARTHA LAKES-After undergoing extensive repairs following a fire earlier this year, the Iron Bridge in Lindsay which connects Logie Street to Nayoro Park has reopened to the public. Effective November 25, the bridge is fully accessible and open for public use.

Emergency crews were called to the area at approximately 11:30 pm on April 30th. A huge, red ball of flames lit up the night sky. Neighbours say it was “bright and loud”.

“Damage is fairly extensive,” said Fire Chief Terry Jones on May 1. “Do we have structural damage or did it just burn the boards and not any of the metal? It will have to be looked at by an engineer, I can’t confirm a dollar amount at this time.”

The bridge was closed while police investigated and repairs were completed.

No one was injured in the blaze according to Jones.
