Possible fatality in abandoned golf driving-range clubhouse

A fire in Charlottetown at this hour is believed to be fatal.

The coroner is at the scene of a fire at the former Sherwood Greens driving range clubhouse between the Charlottetown Mall and Mount Edward Road.

The abandoned building was being used as a party and hangout spot by teenagers, a witness told The Guardian.

People said that it appears as if one teen was taken to hospital and there appears from the circumstances of the police presence and the coronor that there is a fatality.

The forensic identification unit and the major crime vehicle are now at the scene.

Firefighters were battling the blaze starting around 5:30 a.m. and were packing up equipment by 10:30 a.m.

    This is a tragedy and the above post is typical of the society we now live in, looking for someone to put blame on. Let's not focus on playing the blame game and focus on sending our thoughts and prayers to the victims family.

    It was boarded up, nailed shut, secured. It was being broken into regularly and subsequently being secured regularly. Why would you immediately think the owners should be charged? Kinda like charging the store for being robbed, isn't it? These people were determined to get in .. and they got in. My sympathies are entirely with their loved ones for the loss they are suffering. Best wishes to the one who survived but with severe injuries. It's a sad time for them all.

    Couldn't the property owner face charges for this? The driving range/mini putt hasn't been open for awhile, but isn't their a responsibility to make sure that the structure (the former shop i believe) is secured? I believe this would be considered an "attractive nuisance" - being abandoned and unchecked obviously makes it an ideal spot for teenagers to hang out and drink, smoke,etc.
