VERNON - A fire in a hotel at the Silver Star Mountain Resort in Vernon has caused extensive smoke and water damage.

General manager Russell Haubrich of the Vance Creek Hotel says a dryer caught fire in a room next to a restaurant.

He suspects grease residue from rags ignited the blaze, which was reported at about 4:30 a.m.

Haubrich says water from the sprinkler system ran for about half an hour, damaging the ceiling in a bar at the hotel.

He says the restaurant was expected to reopen later Thursday, but the bar may be closed for up to two days.

Leslie John McCulloch, 39, and Rebekka Rae White, 27, have been charged in connection with a warehouse where police seized a massive amount of fentanyl in March, 2016.
