An early-morning fire at Hampshire Country Club in Dowagiac, Mich., has destroyed 120 golf carts and the building they were stored in, the Mishawaka (Ind.)-based WSBT-TV reported.
The fire was reported by a police officer who was driving past the golf course the morning of August 21, and they were all destroyed, WSBT-TV reported.
Witnesses reported hearing small explosions as the building burned, but investigators said those were likely caused by LP tanks and gas cans that were stored in the building, WSBT-TV reported.
Investigators have not yet determined a cause, but they have not ruled out arson, WSBT-TV reported.
The clubhouse is not connected to the building that burned but it did suffer some damage, WSBT-TV reported.
The golf course is a family-owned business that opened in 1960. The owners do have insurance, but do not plan to open the golf course for the day, WSBT-TV reported.
