Fire investigators are trying to determine the cause of a blaze that raced through the main building at the Torrington Country Club and caused an estimated $500,000 in damage.
Authorities say the four-alarm fire in Goshen began at about 10:30 p.m. Monday. No injuries are reported.
About 75 firefighters from area departments responded, and it took them about 31/2 hours to get it under control.
TV news reports say investigators believe the fire may have started in a trash bin behind the building. The blaze spread to the second floor.
The country club’s website says it dates back to 1929 and has an 18-hole golf course. The club’s dining room seats 120 people, and its banquet hall can accommodate up to 200.
