On October 13th, 2019 when my brother was heading home to Toronto after our Thanksgiving in Britt he could see the smoke. Dad and I headed out to investigate.
Just north of the Britt turn-off (between Parry Sound and Sudbury on Hwy 69/400) the old Skylight Motel burned down. We don’t know the cause of the fire at this time.
Mom remembers going there when she was a teenager. It was a hangout spot with burgers and root beer floats in the 1960s and 1970s. It hasn’t been used as a motel in 20 years.
We are so thankful to have such swift, skilled local volunteer fire fighters in the area!
