Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire and have not yet determined the reason for the fire. The track has a spectacular history in this small town. It started out as a dance hall and later became a skating rink. After many successful years, it closed for very sad reasons.

Although the officials stated that there are no injuries and that there is nothing to worry about. They have not received any life. However, they are still looking for the cause of the fire and have started to investigate it. The owners of the former skating rink, in a statement on Facebook, said they were deeply saddened by the loss of the building that housed their business in recent years.
