CEDAR FORT, Utah, Feb. 16, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — The main lodge of Wasatch Wing and Clay bird hunting club in Cedar Fort was destroyed by fire early Thursday morning, officials said.

Unified Fire Authority spokesman Taylor Sandstrom said crews were dispatched at 1:15 a.m., and it took more than 30 firefighters approximately three hours to control the flames.

UFA was joined in its firefighting efforts by Saratoga Springs and Lehi Fire Departments.

Sandstrom said the club, at 16800 W. 8000 North in Cedar Fort, is two miles off a main road, and by the time crews reached the building the fire was fully involved.

He said the main lodge is a total loss.

There is no word yet on what sparked the fire.

Wasatch Wing and Clay updated on Facebook late Thursday morning: “We did have a dramatic fire that has totaled the clubhouse. Just tinder as of now.”

The club went on to say that it is still open for shooting and hunting.

There were no injuries.

Cedar Fort is approximately 10 miles west of Eagle Mountain.
