    Pas Ka Poo Parks admin-istrator Cheryl Jones attributes the quick action of Rimbeys volunteer fire department with saving a church at the park from going up in flames last Tuesday.

    Thank God for their quick response, she said. We are so lucky. It could have gone up so easily and then the rest of the buildings could have gone, too. It would have been a historical catastrophe.

    Jones said she got a call about 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday from the RCMP as they need-ed a key to get to the church. The RCMP told her there had been a fire at the park and they needed to get inside the church to be certain there had been no damage.

    I raced to the park with my heart in my throat, she said. I just panicked.

    However, the firemen had already extinguished a fire in the hay bales beside the church by the time Jones ar-rived.

    Luckily the ground was still frozen and the fire didnt spread.

    She said it was difficult to determine how the fire started in the hay bales that night as it was dark. The next day, however, Jones and volunteer Eric Hornsey discovered the work of vandals in the park and they are certain the fire in the bales was not caused by an electrical malfunction.

    Whether they did it de-liberately or accidentally, I dont know, she said. But there were people here mess-ing around. They had messed with the nativity scene and

    Vandals active at

    Pas Ka Poo Park

    (the statue) of Mary was sit-ting in a truck (at the museum) and a wagon pulled out on the grass. The big polar bear is missing; it is nowhere to be found and an igloo is all smashed up.

    Fire chief John Weisgerber said he suspects the fire was caused by vandals.
