HOUSTON — The structure at 4646 Pampel Road in Houston burned to the ground early Monday morning, but there were no injuries.

According to Houston Fire Chief Jeff Poeppelman, The structure, otherwise known as the old Camp Evergreen Lodge, was owned by five couples from Fort Loramie. A passerby called in the fire around 4:45 a.m., and Poeppelman said the fire most likely started way before they got the call as it was fully involved when personnel arrived. The cause of the fire is undetermined and the state fire marshall’s office will investigate. Poeppelman estimated the loss to be over $500,000.

Multiple fire departments responded as well as Spirit EMS and Shelby County deputies. Crews were on the scene from 5 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
