Police are investigating a fire which destroyed a function centre on the Mid North Coast last night.
Emergency services were called to Lakes Way, Tiona, south of Forster, about 10.20pm (Sunday 21 August 2016) where they found the function centre well alight.
The fire was extinguished by Fire & Rescue NSW and the Rural Fire Service, but the building was destroyed.
It is not believed anyone was in the building at the time of the incident.
An exclusion zone is in effect due to asbestos being located.
Crime scene officers hope to examine the site later today and detectives from Manning/Great Lakes Local Area Command will investigate.
The cause of the fire is not known at this time and police urge any person who has information which could assist investigators to come forward.
