A historic 118-year-old Romanian Orthodox Church was reduced to a pile of rubble after being consumed by a fire earlier this week, in an incident that police have yet to confirm the cause. St. Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church, located in northwest Alberta near the Romanian settlement of Boian, was consecrated in 1905. It was declared a provincial historic resource in 1976. On Tuesday, local firefighters from the Two Hills County fire department were called to the scene to put out the blaze around 6 p.m., and asked the local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for assistance.
