Cornwall Ontario – Fire struck landmark bar, The Rendez Vous (1213 Pitt Street) in Cornwall Ontario Saturday.
Sadly the fire struck after the bar had just had its patio licensed according to owner Guylaine Lefebvre’s facebook posting for the bar.
From Ms Lefebvre’s facebook post:
Very sad day indeed. Thank god noone was hurt. Nothing left to salvage. Will have to start everything from scratch. The Rendez Vous has been my whole life for almost ten years. It’s been my home with the good and the bad. I’m totally devasted but I have wonderful people in my life; friends, family, staff, and all the great patrons who all together made this bar the best little bar in town. Thank you all for your kind words and your support. Hopefully we can rebuild quickly. Will keep you posted with the progress.
We’ll update the story if the Cornwall Fire Service sends out an actual email of the incident. (the CFS doesn’t seem to email media any longer….)
