Massive fire breaks out at Oakland Hills Country Club, ripping through clubhouse
A massive blaze Thursday ripped through the clubhouse at Oakland Hills Country Club
a historic golf facility that has hosted major golf championships and was positioned to host major tournaments in the coming decade.
The extent of damages wasn't immediately known, but large flames engulfed most of the 110,000-square-foot clubhouse.
The blaze was reported mid-morning and, by early afternoon, appeared to be contained.
There were no injuries, with a club official emailing members that "everyone got out OK."
There had been recent construction on the clubhouse's patio, members said.
The fire broke out Thursday morning, and dispatch quickly called for a bigger firefighting response.
