ANNAPOLIS ROYAL - An early morning fire has destroyed the lodge at Milford House.
Annapolis Royal fire crews received the call at 4 a.m. May 18 and were at the scene by 4:30 a.m., finding the main lodge fully involved.
Firefighters from a number of departments were called in mutual aid to the resort on Trunk 8 between Annapolis Royal and Kejimkujik National Park.
The cause of the fire is not known as of mid-morning, but officials from the fire marshalâ€™s office are on the scene.
Milford House fans have been posting condolences on the resort's Facebook page this morning. It was the resortâ€™s opening weekend and there were 23 guests in the cottages.
The historic resort has welcomed travellers since the late 1800s, with the first cabins opening in 1902. In 2000, a fire destroyed the main lodge. The building destroyed this morning was the replacement structure.
There were no injuries to firefighters, guests or staff at the resort.
