First arriving units found the main office/restaurant lounge was well involved with fire. SML Fire Boat 11-6 initiated fire suppression with the deluge monitor as land based units stretched hand-lines and established a elevated water attack using an aerial apparatus. Volunteers spent several hours on scene bringing the blaze under control. The scene has been turned over to the Bedford County Fire-Rescue Fire Marshal’s Division for Investigation.
