Fire Destroys Bass Lake Home; No Injuries


A fire at a Bass Lake summer residence destroyed the home but caused no injuries, according to Bass Lake Fire Chief Les Jensen. He told WKVI that the fire occurred at a residence in the 3700 block of South County Road 210, on the north side of the lake between Boa Shores and the Shore Club.

Jensen said the fire occurred Friday night around 4 p.m. Fortunately, the homeowners were not at the home at the time the fire occurred and fire officials responded promptly to the blaze, extinguishing it within an hour.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined and is under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office.

Jensen said the Bass Lake Fire Department received mutual aid from the Washington Township and Knox fire departments.
