The tiny village of Perdue suffered a major loss Saturday as its local hockey arena burned to the ground.

It was around noon when Jeff Sergeson in nearby Kinley started seeing Facebook photos of the fire. He said his wife then called him to say the rink would be a "total loss".

"We were kind of bummed out because my kids actually play hockey in that rink," he said. "It's such a small town, we don't know what we're going to do now."

The rink had stood for over half a century, boasting natural ice, inside warm-up benches and a concession.
