Frank Caputo, the Member of Parliament for Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo, tweeted that the fire brought “tears to my eyes,” noting that he had visited the complex recently.

Joel Levy, a Toronto photographer, said the guests were taken from their rooms by mid-morning and an emergency shelter was set up at the nearby gang’s office. He said on Twitter that a firewall appears to have contained the fire in one section of the hotel while the other wing was still intact.

The lodge and golf course in Chase, BC is owned and managed by the Little Shuswap Lake Band. The lodge and spa opened in 1992, while the championship course was completed in 2006.
