Still no word on the cause of the Ell Mar motel fire just outside of Parry Sound. Seguin Fire Chief Don Hood says the Fire Marshall’s office completed their investigation earlier this week, but he doesn’t expect a report back for the next couple of weeks. The motel broke into flames around 8:30pm Friday. West Parry Sound OPP says everyone was evacuated from the motel and two people were taken by ambulance to the West Parry Sound Health Centre with non-life threatening injuries. All other occupants were able to find accommodations at surrounding hotels in the area.
