Fire Set to Baseball Dugout Last Night

August 17, 2017

The City is disappointed to report that a fire was set last night to one of the dug outs at the Patty Hutcheon Field (between the Recreation Complex and Prince Rupert Middle School). A bench in the dugout was partially destroyed, but the concrete dugouts are still considered safe to use for shelter until repairs are made. The City will not be able to address the repairs until next week, due to ongoing capital and emergency infrastructure projects. We apologize for the inconvenience to the softball community of Prince Rupert, and encourage greater respect be paid to the community infrastructure we all share.
