Furnace Creek ranch fire in Death Valley
« on: December 05, 2014, 07:16:31 AM »
Saw on the CHP site that the Ranch Creek hotel in Death Valley was on fire and as 0600 this morning was still burning,,,,12 hours after the first report.....I can only assume that it has been destroyed.....

I pulled up that site, and it sure didn't have a lot of info....   just used words like 'fully engulfed'... ugh...     it did say a structure 20 feet from the road tho... I am not familiar with the layout there to know if that holds any clues...      I googled and came up empty looking for a news story about it...    :(

 now there is mention of it being the large laundry building... maybe that is the only building involved?
