Silverwood reopens water park after fire

UPDATED: Sun., Aug. 24, 2014

A fire broke out this afternoon in a restroom/changing room at Silverwood’s Boulder Beach Water Park near Athol. Silverwood temporarily evacuated the water park as firefighters fought the fire and reopened the park about 4:15 p.m. The fire broke out in the building, on the northeast end of the waterpark, about 1:45 p.m., Silverwood spokesman Mark Robitaille said. There were no injuries, but the building is a loss, Robitaille said. The water park has one more week of operation left in the season. Timberlake and Northern Lakes fire protection districts responded to the fire.
