Osage Beach Fire Department personnel, and firemen from other lake area districts, battled a fire Saturday evening that damaged much of one building at Lakewood Resort near the Grand Glaize Bridge.
No official information was available as of 3 p.m. Sunday. One of five buildings in the Lakewood complex was engulfed in flames when firemen arrived. Much of the damage was sustained by the top two floors, although there was other fire, water and smoke damage to most of the other units in the building.
The fire was considered extinguished by 10 p.m., but some units remained on the scene past 10:30 p.m. The fire was visible from Highway 54 expressway, waterfront homes and restaurants in the area.
There were no reports of injury or cause as of mid-afternoon Sunday.
