Sad News

At about 3:15 am last night the Mackinac Island Fire Department responded to a house, on fire, on the East Bluff. (The very first house when you are heading down the Bluff toward Mission Hill.) Sadly, there was nothing that could be done to save the historic home - it had already collapsed by the time the a Grand Hotel security guard noticed the flames and called 911. 

As of this morning, this was all that was left. Thankfully the house was empty for the winter - no one was hurt and no other homes were damaged.

Lots of people may not recognize this house since it wasn't visible from the water, but this picture will give you an idea where it was. No word yet on the family's plans, but please keep them in your thoughts.
