Fire destroys building in Dollar Bay

One structure is a total loss after an early morning fire at a camp in Houghton County. The call came into the Dollar Bay Fire Department just before 8:00 a.m..

When fire crews arrived at 44220 North Grosse Pointe Shores in Torch Lake Township, they found the building fully engulfed in flames.

Dollar Bay Fire Chief Ron Kokkonen said there was some difficulty getting water to the fight the fire.

Even though the camp sits on the shore of a lake crews were unable to access it. Water had to be brought in from other local fire departments.

The fire was under control in about an hour.  No one was injured.

The Boston Fire Department, Quincy–Franklin Township Fire Department, and Mercy Ambulance assisted on the scene.
