Iceland Ice Rink A Sacramento landmark was destroyed by fire this past weekend. The Iceland Ice Rink on Del Paso Boulevard had been open for 70 years. The fire started early Sunday and the old building quickly became a lost cause. The cause of the fire is not yet known although a burned car found at the back of the building has attracted attention. Today on Insight, we'll listen again to segment we did in 2007 about the history of Iceland Ice Rink, which was being told in a local public TV documentary. We'll also check in with Rob Kerth about the fire and what his family plans to do next.
