Fire burns Columbia restaurant

By Margie Thompson / The Union Democrat / @margielou

A

structure fire at the Jenny Lind Restaurant, formerly the Columbia

House, at Columbia State Historic Park was reported at 6:24 p.m. Sunday

night.

Paul

Speer, assistant county fire warden for Tuolumne County Fire, said

multiple reports were made on the fire, and the cause is under

investigation.

Cal

Fire Battalion Chief Nick Casci said 75 percent of the structure was

destroyed, but fire crews were able to save 25 percent of the building,

which houses Angelo's Hall.

Engines

from Cal Fire in Calaveras County, Tuolumne County Fire's Jamestown station, the Columbia Fire Department and Sonora City Fire Department responded. Also

on scene were two water tenders, a battalion chief and division chief.
