Fire Damages Clubhouse at Private Golf Course

August 18, 2000

GLENDALE — A fire caused $500,000 in damage early Thursday to a two-story building at the Chevy Chase Country Club, but no one was hurt, authorities said.

Flames and smoke were seen at the rear of the clubhouse in the 3000 block of East Chevy Chase Drive about 4:20 a.m. An off-duty Glendale police officer saw the blaze and notified the Glendale Fire Department.

The structure was well-involved when firefighters arrived, a Glendale dispatcher said. It took about 30 minutes before firefighters knocked down the flames.

Firefighters estimate that the blaze caused about $300,000 in structural damage and another $200,000 in content loss. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

A club employee who declined to give his name said it is unknown when the private golf course will reopen.
