PLAINVILE, Mass. (WLNE) — The Plainville YMCA Family Pool Club will not be able to open this summer due to the damage from Saturday’s fire.

The pool was deemed a total loss after the Berry Street building went up in flames.

The fire broke out ahead of Memorial Day weekend, which marks swimming season for many families.
