GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. (AP) – The damage estimate from last month’s fire that destroyed a condominium complex in Government Camp has been set at nearly $11 million.

Fire Marshal Scott Kline of the Hoodland Fire District tells The Oregonian newspaper that he and investigators from several insurance companies are still trying to determine what started the three-alarm fire.

The April 20 blaze destroyed the Golden Poles Chalet, a three-story, 30-unit complex built in the 1960s. No residents or firefighters were injured.

Much of the complex near Mt. Hood Skibowl has been pulled apart so investigators can inspect the charred wreckage.
