Fire broke out at Verbier Sports Centre just after 1pm today, June 9th.

Thankfully no one was hurt in the fire that tore apart the Verbier Sports Centre. The Centre sportif restaurant, indoor pool and ice rink have been burnt to the ground. The rear tennis courts are also burnt, and substantial damage to the new sports hall.

*UPDATE – Sat 10th June*

This morning fire brigade were still spraying water in an attempt to make the area safe for the fire inspectors to investigate.
