Thanksgiving Weekend Fire Consumes Old Clubhouse

At 6:13 PM on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, the alert came in as structure fire with flames through the roof and a chained driveway.  As the first engine left the fire station, they could see the flames from the old clubhouse about a quarter mile away.  Since the clubhouse was the second largest structure in the district and it was heavily involved in flames, firefighters knew it would be a long night.

Flames visible as the first engine departs the fire station.

First arriving firefighters immediately requested mutual aid from Ridgway Fire and Ouray Fire in addition to the automatic aid fire engine that was enroute from Montrose Fire.  Throughout the night, 30 firefighters from four departments worked to contain the blaze and ensure it did not extend to the forest surrounding the structure.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
