Probe begins into fire that destroyed historic lodge in Olympic NP

OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Federal fire investigators arrived Tuesday to examine the smoldering remains of the 12,201-square-foot day lodge at Hurricane Ridge after Sunday’s blaze.


The 70-year-old lodge, which had been on the verge of rehabilitation, burned to the ground on Sunday, leaving only chimneys and smoking wreckage after a ranger found it fully engulfed in flames at 4:30 p.m. Firefighters from Clallam 2 Fire-Rescue and Port Angeles Fire Department arrived shortly thereafter to find the building had collapsed onto its foundations.
