FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — The historic Marble Canyon Lodge and Restaurant in
northern Arizona has burned to the ground.
Coconino County Sheriff’s officials say the fire was reported about 1:30 a.m.
Flames and smoke were seen coming from the rear of the structure when fire
Sheriff’s deputies and detectives and Flagstaff Fire Department investigators
are on scene trying to determine the cause of the fire.
The Marble Canyon Lodge was built in 1926 about 125 miles north of Flagstaff
near the Colorado River at Lee’s Ferry.
Authorities say the newer building that houses the post office and convenience
store located north of the lodge wasn’t damaged by the fire and neither was the
motel to the south of the lodge.
