The fire was confined to the main building of the private Ambridge, Pa., property, which housed a bar, restaurant, banquet room, ballroom, and meeting room. Part of the structure collapsed as firefighters worked to contain the blaze, but no injuries were reported.
A three-alarm fire this morning heavily damaged the Harmony Ridge Golf Club in Ambridge, Pa., the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
The fire was reported around 5:30 a.m. and was confined to the main building of the private club, according to county emergency officials. Harmony fire Chief Jim Curcio said the fire was brought under control about two hours later. No injuries were reported, the Post-Gazette reported.
Part of the structure collapsed as firefighters worked to contain the blaze. Shane Miller, who worked at the club for four years, called the fire “devastating,” the Post-Gazette reported.
The building houses many of the club’s amenities, including a bar, restaurant, banquet room, ballroom, meeting room and music equipment, Miller told the Pittsburgh-based Tribune-Review.
Chief Curcio said the state fire marshal’s office has been called to the scene to investigate the cause, the Post-Gazette reported.
The club, formerly known as the Ambridge Country Club, is occasionally used as an event venue and also houses a pub. The event facility includes a banquet hall and ballroom, the Post-Gazette reported.
“It was a very up-and-coming place,” the chief said.
