Fire officials say Bucks Lodge fire accidental

Feather Publishing
3/3/2010 

Fire officials said Tuesday the fire that destroyed historical Bucks Lake Lodge, two outbuildings and the owner's adjacent cabin residence started accidentally near the wood-burning stove in the lodge.

The fire occurred around 4:30 a.m., January 20, 2010, and firefighter efforts were severely hampered by heavy snow. The area was accessible only by snowmobile and snow cat.

Cal Fire Official Nikole Melo said in an e-mail the investigation had been concluded and the fire originated near the wood-burning stove.

In a phone interview, owner Rebecca Gutierrez said she and her husband plan to rebuild the lodge, though "it will take awhile."
