An early morning fire at the Jacksonville (N.C.) Country Club has caused more than $300,000 worth of damage, officials say.
At approximately 4 a.m. Friday, April 3, 2009, the Jacksonville Police Department responded to reports of a fire at the country club, according to a press release from JPD. Upon arrival officers found the golf cart shed engulfed in flames. The Jacksonville Fire Department responded and extinguished the flames.
The fire was “suspicious,” Fire Marshall John Reed said to ENC Today. Forty-five golf carts valued at $6,000 each and the shed, which was insured for $80,000, were completely ruined.
“There was some vandalism that was surrounding the building. They’d obtained spray paint cans and sprayed graffiti on the lawn and on the sides and one of the water stations,” Reed said.
