AMANA, Iowa (AP) - An early morning fire at a remote eastern Iowa golf course caused major damage to the course’s clubhouse.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1WECljc ) that firefighters responded to the Amana Colonies Golf Club around 3:40 a.m. Friday.

Firefighters say they were initially unable to approach the fire because of its intensity. The clubhouse’s walls and roof were severely damaged, likely rendering the building a total loss.

Authorities say they finished putting out the fire around 5:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

Officials say they planned to remain at the site for several more hours to watch for hot spots and investigate how the fire started.
