This was all that remained of the Moosehorn Motor Hotel after a fire destroyed the business in the early hours of Jan. 13. BY TAMMY KARATCHUK For Interlake Publishing When Dave Greene drove by the Moosehorn Motor Hotel at 6 a.m. on his way to work Jan. 13, he couldn?t believe his eyes. Green stopped to watch the hotel burn to the ground, taking years of memories with it. ?It was already flat. There was just nothing to save,? said Greene. ?(There?s) a lot of memories in those walls.? In a press statement, Ashern RCMP said fire crews were alerted at 1 a.m., and the ?hotel is a total loss.? At this time, the cause of the fire is still under investigation and estimated damages are unknown. The hotel was vacant at the time and there were no injuries. There?s a sense of loss in the community, commented Gene Price, a councillor for Moosehorn in the RM of Grahamdale. ?It?s very hard,? said Price. ?It?s sad. That building has been there for 40 years.? He said the Moosehorn Motor Hotel was the only restaurant in town and ?a meeting place.? ?There?s only now two businesses left in Moosehorn,? said Price. ?It?s getting less and less all the time. It?s not good for the town.? Greene compared the fire to when the Arborg Hotel burned down January 2006, which rose from the ashes in 2009. Like the ?Oldie,? he said, the Moosehorn Motor Hotel was the place to go. ?Christmas parties. Everyone. All the baseball teams,? said Greene. ?Always a thing. Wing night every week.? Greene added that when he passed by the site again around 5 p.m., firefighters were still dosing what was left of the hotel. And, something PHOTO COURTESY OF RCMP

else stood out. ?There were a bunch of cars. People parked, and they were standing in a circle,? he said. ?I don?t know if they were holding vigil or what?? Greene, who operates ?Karaoke with King Dave,? used to run his shows at the Moosehorn Motor Hotel, and perform live. ?I played there for 25 years,? said Greene, who is also an Elvis impersonator. ?I played there many times. I think people aren?t going to realize how much they?ll miss it. You don?t know what you?ve got ?til it?s gone.?
