COLOMA, Mich. (AP) – Officials say several cabins have been destroyed and a firefighter hurt in a blaze at a resort in southwestern Michigan.
North Berrien Fire Rescue Interim Chief Dave Woodward tells The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph that the firefighter suffered smoke inhalation while battling the blaze Sunday at the Pottawattamie Resort.
No other injuries were reported.
Firefighters responded to the call around 6 p.m. at the resort near Lake Michigan in Berrien County.
The resort’s property manager, Erica Friedman, tells WSBT-TV she was in one of the cabins when the fire started. Friedman and her boyfriend escaped unharmed, but lost everything they owned, including their two cats.
WNDU-TV says the resort has been a staple in the community since the early 1900s.
