Fire has destroyed a luxury lodge in southeast Ohio's scenic Hocking Hills region.

Authorities suspect an electrical problem started Sunday's fire that spread quickly through Eagle Wings Lodge in Rockbridge.

Firefighters who responded from neighboring Laurelville drew water from a pond on the property to fight the flames but were unable to save the wooden building.

The lodge's owner was inside at the time the fire broke out but was unhurt.

Eagle Wings Lodge could accommodate up to 20 guests in its seven bedrooms. It also featured a home theater system, a pair of nine-foot stone fireplaces and a hot tub with room for 10.

The fire did not damage an accompanying luxury tree house equipped with a mini fridge and microwave.
