WHITEHALL Mich. – A lodge along the lakeshore is said to be a complete loss after a fire on Sunday.

Fire crews were called to the Michillinda Lodge at around 4:30 a.m. to fight the flames.

Our crew on scene said  five people were staying at the lodge. They weren’t staying as guests, but  were contracted to work there.  We’re told it was the contract workers who notified authorities of the fire.

Everyone made it out safely.

Firefighters say the fire started in the main lodge .

The fire is still under an investigation and the cause has yet to be determined.
