Fire burns down historic lodge

Officials are scrambling to find accommodations for people after an historic lodge burned in Lake of the Ozarks state park.

The fire destroyed the dining lodge at the Camp Pin Oak Group.

It started sometime before 2 a.m.

No one was inside at the time.

A preliminary investigation could not pinpoint the cause.

However, there was lightning in the area at the time.

The lodge has served visitors for more than 70 years. Groups had reserved it throughout this month.
