Authorities say the fire started about 7 p.m. Sunday, leaving only the building's fireplace standing. A Garland County Sheriff's Department employee says the lodge was occupied when the fire started but 70 West Fire Chief Autumn Carlisle says there were no reported injuries.
Carlisle received a minor injury when an explosion from within the burning lodge blew wooden shrapnel toward firemen. One piece hit her in the leg but after the wound was bandaged, she continued operating a pumper truck.
She says authorities would investigate the cause of the fire on Monday.
