Hi guys, im sure you all have heard the sad news about The View Point Inn being caught on fire a few days ago. If you all remember this is the place where the prom scene in the first Twilight movie was filmed..
CORBETT, Ore. - The historic View Point Inn in the Columbia River Gorge caught fire on Sunday, sending a plume of smoke into the sky and burning much of the building's top floor.
The inn's owners said two people walking around the back of the inn first spotted the flames and ran inside to alert employees.
The two people were fans of the Twilight movie. Part of the popular movie was filmed at the inn and movie fans often stop by to visit, the owners said.
Investigators said sparks from the chimney that landed on the cedar shake roof started the fire.
Staff members tried to put the fire out with a garden hose, but were not successful.
Deputies said several guests were in the building at the time. A wedding was also scheduled for the afternoon and the guests who had arrived were sent home. A nearby facility offered the host the wedding instead.
The View Point Inn is located near Vista House in the Columbia River Gorge.
