Fort Saskatchewan is still buzzing after a fire damaged part of the Mowat outdoor rink.
 
The rink bench and some of the boards were destroyed on Friday, October 23.
 
Insurance will be covering the estimated $10,000-$15,000 for it to be rebuilt.
 
"It's a pretty solid conclusion that the only reason a fire would have started was due to human intervention, whether or not that was an accidental ignition or not," said Shawn McKerry, the Fort Saskatchewan Fire Chief.
 
The rink shack wasn't damaged.
 
"Our facilities department is working diligently to get an assessment done and they're very optimistic that they can get the players box and the boards rebuilt for the upcoming hockey season as it gets a bit colder here," added McKerry.
 
Local RCMP are continuing their investigation.
