UPDATE: Fire guts Pine River church

Trailside Center vandalized

The Trailside Center at the Pequot Lakes Baptist Church was vandalized Thursday, Jan. 23, when more than one person entered, emptying two fire extinguishers and taking juice from a refrigerator.

Police reports say the fire extinguisher was sprayed all over the gym at the Trailside Center and left outside.

Pequot Lakes Police Sgt. Chad Turcotte said the mess will be costly to clean up, as special crews need to clean up fire extinguishers.

The department has strong leads due to the Trailside Center’s surveillance system. The building requires access codes for entry.
