BROOKS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Multiple fire departments were called in to help when a restaurant south of Newaygo caught fire Tuesday evening, dispatchers said.

Photos from witnesses show some flames and heavy smoke rising from the roof of Smuggler’s Cove, which sits on the north side of Hess Lake in Brooks Township.

The cause of the fire has not yet been released, but an employee of the restaurant told 24 Hour News 8 over the phone that he saw flames coming from the upstairs electrical box for the air conditioning unit.

A witness said crews from Grant, Croton Township and White Cloud were helping to fight the fire.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.
