Credit Island Fire Update

Posted: Updated:

 

Fire investigators say the cause of the Credit Island Lodge fire is accidental but, there is so much damage they cannot pin point an exact cause.

We got an up-close look at damage this afternoon. The roof is gone, the burnt remains are on the ground. Also, a portion of the 2nd floor collapsed.
 
Exposing the inside of the building to the elements.
  
The Lodge has been turned over the park's department who is responsible for securing the building.

"We have recommended securing the doors, boarding up any windows to keep people from coming in, because it is very unsafe inside the building," Davenport Fire Chief Lynn Washburn said.

The city is hiring an engineer to access the building. That will help them determine if Credit Island Lodge can be saved.
