A house in the rural area on Loewen Boulevard went up in flames Thursday evening. The fire was intentionally started by the La Broquerie Fire Department. 

Chief Alain Nadeau says they had been training in that building for the past few months and it was time to burn it down. 

The old building had been offered to the fire department as the owner had no use for it.
