The Mid-Station Lodge at Whiteface Mountain Ski Center Destroyed By Fire

The Mid-Station Lodge at Whiteface Mountain Ski Center caught fire Saturday night and was destroyed by flames. Arriving fire crews say the strucutre was too far gone by the time they got there and was burned down to the frame. Staff had tried to use snowmaking equipment to tame the flames before firefighters got there but to no avail. Investigators are trying to get to the bottom of a cause for the fire.
