The Mason City Fire Department has released more information about Wednesday morning’s blaze.
Authorities say the call came in just a little after three in the morning. When they arrived, they found flames showing through the windows and on the roof. A total of 36 members of the fire department were either already on duty or called in to duty as a result of the blaze.
Fire crews were able to confine the fire to the dining room/banquet area on the west side of the building. That side of the roof then collapsed.
Nobody was hurt and a full investigation is underway.
