Ricky Sonfrere’s auto repair shop on the K’atlo’deeche First Nation, with a customer’s vehicle inside, was destroyed by fire Oct. 16.

The owner of an auto repair garage on the Hay River Reserve destroyed last week by fire says he plans to rebuild.

“Now my entire shop is gone,” said Ricky Sonfrere, owner of Rick’s Auto Parts, located on a rural stretch of road leading to the old village site.

The business he’s run for about 10 years was consumed by fire Oct. 16. No one was injured.
