Thunder Mountain Lodge on mesa destroyed by fire

Investigators from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation are expected today at Thunder Mountain Lodge on Grand Mesa, where a Tuesday morning blaze destroyed the main building.

Outbuildings associated with the lodge, formerly known as Spruce Lodge, at 20658 Baron Lake Drive, were unaffected by the blaze, Delta County Undersheriff Mark Taylor said.

Emergency dispatch received a call about the fire at 12:30 a.m., but by the time sheriff’s deputies and firefighters from Cedaredge arrived, “The lodge was basically gone,” Taylor said.

There was no immediate cause to consider the blaze to be suspect,  Taylor said, but the CBI is sending in experienced investigators to back up his investigators, who have attended basic fire-investigation training, Taylor said.

“We try to be kind of cautious with these kinds of things,” he said.

The lodge website, http://www.thundermountainlodge.net, identified Mark Stewart as the owner. Stewart couldn’t be reached immediately for comment. There was no immediate estimate of the damage, Taylor said.
