Sunday Night Blaze Destroys Clinton Country Club Golf Cart Garage

A Sunday night fire outside of Clinton left the golf cart garage at the Clinton Country Club a total loss.


A DeWitt County Sheriff's Deputy reported the fire shortly before 11 pm Sunday and was fully involved by the time crews arrived on scene. 


Clinton Fire Department personnel indicate by the time crews arrived at the scene the barn was already nearly a total loss and the goal was to protect the main Country Club building adjacent to the garage.


In addition to Clinton Fire, tankers were at the scene from Kenney Fire, Wapella Fire, and a Maroa Fire Department with Waynesville Fire on standby at the Clinton Fire Station.


Around 5,000 to 6,000 gallons of water were used, primarily to protect the main Country Club building. According to Clinton Fire personnel, that is a relatively small amount of water used and it was in part because the building was nearly a total loss by the time of their arrival.


Crews were at the scene until roughly 1 am and the cause of the fire is undetermined.
