Fire units responded to the Bigfork, Mont. club in the early morning hours February 16. While the cause of the fire has not been determined, it is believed to have started in a section containing the pro shop and dining area.
The Eagle Bend Golf Club clubhouse in Bigfork, Mont. caught fire February 16, KECI reported. Club management said the fire started in the part of the building farthest from administrative offices. That part of the building contained a pro shop and dining area.
The administrative area was the last part of the clubhouse to burn, management told KECI. It was reported as a total loss.
Bigfork Fire Chief Mark Thiry told KRTV crews responded to a call from Flathead County dispatch at around 2 a.m. on February 16.
Bigfork units responded to the scene and didn’t see any indication of a fire outside, but when the caretaker of the building opened the front door, he saw the building was full of smoke, KRTV reported. The on-scene officer called for additional backup and five more fire department units responded.
Thiry said the entire inside of the building was quickly in flames and that the fire took around four hours to extinguish, KRTV reported. The cause of the fire is still being investigated with the assistance of the state fire marshal’s office.
There were no injuries; the dollar amount of damage has not yet been determined, KRTV reported.
