Fire officials in Cheltenham Township are investigating who might have been in the area of a vacant country club building that went up in flames late Sunday.
The three-alarm fire, which lit the night sky, already was through the roof of the former Cedarbrook Country Club building when the first of 100 firefighters arrived just after 10:30 p.m. Fire Marshal Joseph O’Neill said the building in the 8400 block of Limekiln Pike was a total loss, although he could not estimate its worth.
“It was pretty much a defensive firefighting strategy from the beginning,” O’Neill said. “It was vacant. We weren’t going to stop it.”
