The city’s Fieldhouse reopens to the public today.
All programs at the Fieldhouse will return to their regular schedule.
The building housed the YWCA office and transitional housing facility, a 33 unit apartment building housing families who cannot access public or market housing.
The Fieldhouse was closed to the public as representatives of the GNWT – Health & Social Services, Municipal & Community Affairs, Education, Culture & Employment, Housing Corporation, Executive & Indigenous Affairs and the City of Yellowknife provided assistance to the affected families.
All families have since been re-housed.
The cause of the fire has yet to be determined but RCMP and the Office of the Fire Marshal are investigating.
