Bruce Willis' Ski Lodge Burns Down

Not exactly the best wedding present…Just days after Bruce Willis tied the knot in paradise with Emma Heming, his ski home in Fairfield, Idaho has burned to the ground.

The 50-year old lodge at Soldier Mountain went up in flames early this morning. Crew first got a call around 7:30, but they say by the time they reached the property, all they could do was contain the flames, and the house wasn’t saved.

The fire was said to have started near a fireplace in the north end of the lodge, but the official cause has not been determined.

Both Willis’ house and a rental shop next door were destroyed, and two other buildings sustained damage. Firefighters say the snow on the ground kept the fire from spreading further.

Fairfield Volunteer Fire Chief Wayne Marolf told reporters on the scene, "The two buildings are completely gone and nothing left inside could be saved. It appears to be accident, we don't see any foul play, but we want to rule that out to make sure.”

Willis had reportedly been looking into expanding the resort, which would have entailed tearing down the main lodge. It’s terrible what happened, but at least no one was hurt in the fire!
