'Mystery' fire destroys golf clubhouse in Bigfork


KALISPELL — Authorities were investigating a fire that destroyed the clubhouse at a country club in Bigfork.

Eagle Bend membership chairman Jim Fagan II said it's a mystery to him how the fire started early Sunday, The Daily Inter Lake reported. The club and restaurant were closed over the weekend.

"The club is open Monday through Friday and there are generally one or two staff members there if members want to stop in to check on billing or have questions," Fagan said. "But generally, it is closed on weekends this time of year."

The fire burned for about 3 1/2 hours before firefighters had it under control. Nobody was injured.

Neither the golf course nor the carts were damaged, and the course should be open for play at the end of March or early April, Fagan said.
