On Saturday, November 4, the clubhouse co-owned by George Strait at Tapatio Springs Resort in Boerne, Texas got burned.
Based on reports, “The attic was fully involved when the first crew arrived (just before 7 p.m.). They were evacuating the people who were inside”.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported. Devastatingly, a statement posted to the resort’s Facebook page confirmed that the building “is a total loss” after the disaster.
“We are so sorry, in so many ways, to report again that a fire started in our Clubhouse on the evening of November 4, 2017. Everyone is safe. The building is a total loss”.
“Right now we’re in a defensive mode, that is, we’re keeping it from spreading, keeping it confined to the one structure”, the chief said. He said the clubhouse was destroyed.
Photos shared by Kendall County Emergency Management on Sunday show the ravaged building. The Boerne Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze around 7 p.m. on Saturday before requesting help from surrounding counties. The Kendall County Fire Marshall’s Office is investigating the cause based on Facebook posts.
Just a week prior to the fire, Strait performed at the resort raising $1.4 million for Feherty’s Troops First Foundation. This was a benefit show for wounded servicemen and women. As of press time, he has not commented on the fire.
SHORT HISTORY OF THE RESORT
