INVESTIGATION CONTINUES INTO WHITEFACE FIRE

The investigation into that Saturday night fire at Mid-Station Lodge at Whiteface Mountain Ski Center continues today. No one was injured in the fire which was reported by staff Saturday night just before 9. The building reportedly burned down to its frame, and the fire for a time, spread to the surrounding area . The lodge is a total loss. Firefighters had to be taken up the mountain with Snowcats. The Mid-Station Lodge housed two restaurants, and it was located between the Lower Valley and Upper Valley runs. The bottom terminals for the Little Whiteface and Mountain Run chairlifts are near the lodge, but Whiteface was running at full capacity on Saturday, and the snow guns are still operating. So far, no cause has been determined.
