A combination store and restaurant in Lafleche near Gravelbourg and went up in flames over the noon hour.

Kelly Caragata drove into town a short while ago to check on the damage.

"It looks like the store Merchandise on Main is almost burnt to the ground. Fire crews are putting water on it looks like just to keep it from jumping," said Caragata.

Brandy Morissette, acting town administrator, says losing a coffee shop is a big loss for a small town.

Lafleche is south of Gravelbourg and west of Assiniboia.
