CASSELMAN — The new RayJans Windows and Doors outlet in Casselman was destroyed by fire yesterday evening.

“We are very fortunate that everyone is okay. Sadly our new RayJans Store has burnt down. We will keep you up to date,” the firm, which also operates a Cornwall location, acknowledged in a statement on Facebook yesterday evening.

The loss of the 727 Rue Principale address also displaced several families living in the structure’s attached apartments, according to CTV news.

Below is video of the fire posted by the company on its Facebook page.
