    GLENNALLEN, Alaska - A historic hotel in Copper Center has burned down.

    KCAM Radio reports that the Copper Center Lodge caught fire at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, and it's a total loss. Glenn-Rich Fire Chief Matt Catledge says there's no word yet on the origin or cause of the fire.

    The fire was contained to the lodge and did not harm any surrounding buildings.

    Copper Center is about 16 miles southeast of Glennallen.

    We had reservations here for July and it is a total loss. The good news is no one was hurt and they plan to re-open - hopefully for summer 2013. I just found a gem that I wanted to share. Glennallen Rustic B&B. Mile 187. Cynthia - 907/259-1234. Cynthia is just opening and her place sounds wonderful.
