KENNETT, Mo. (AP) — A popular country club in southeast Missouri’s Bootheel has been destroyed by fire.
The Daily Dunklin Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/rVx5f5) the blaze Monday night left the Kennett Country Club in ruins. No injuries were reported, but fire officials estimate the loss at more than $1 million.
Firefighters from several neighboring communities helped fight the blaze. The state fire marshal’s office was called in to help determine the cause.
The building contained the clubhouse and restaurant. A notice on the club’s website Wednesday says the board has already met and is making plans to rebuild.
