Fire Destroys South Lodge at Homewood

Homewood, CA – Homewood Mountain Resort remained closed for a day last Wednesday during the all-important holiday week, following a single structure fire that occurred at the resort’s South Lodge during the early morning hours.

No injuries were reported, and no individuals were on-site at the time. The building is a total loss. The North Tahoe Fire Protection District is investigating the cause of the fire. Normal mountain operations resumed on Thursday.

The South Lodge was primarily used as restaurant and administration offices at the ski resort on the shores of Lake Tahoe.
