FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky parks officials say the Jesse Stuart Lodge at Greenbo Lakes State Resort Park is closed until further notice due to safety concerns.

State Parks Commissioner Donnie Holland made that decision after receiving an engineering draft report that concludes the building is not safe for occupancy.

Holland says the northeastern Kentucky lodge has been closed to visitors for the past six months since an electrical fire caused smoke damage to the main lodge and some guest rooms.

Officials say the lodge was tentatively scheduled to reopen May 30 after repairs from the fire damage were completed. But they now say the reopening will be delayed for several months beyond Memorial Day.

The pool, campgrounds, marina and recreational activities at Greenbo Lake State Resort Park will remain open during renovation of the lodge.
