Jenny Wiley Lodge Back Open After Fire

The lodge at the Jenny Wiley State Park is back open after a fire Saturday night.

A room next to the front desk caught on fire and was put out before it spread any further. Officials believe it started with a coffee maker. The building suffered smoke and water damage, but employees spent all night cleaning up and were back open Sunday afternoon. The employees are also compensating everyone who was evacuated from the restaurant Saturday night.

"I came back to pay my bill and they're not letting me pay my bill. They're giving it to us, so we're blessed all the way around. A terrible catastrophe turned out to be a blessing for us," said Carolyn Crozier.

Firemen say the sprinkler system saved the building from any further damage.
