Investigators still haven’t determined an official cause of the suspicious fire that gutted the abandoned clubhouse at D’Andrea golf course.
Sparks Fire Marshal Robert King said the cause of the Oct. 28 fire remains under investigation although officials suspect it was intentionally set.
“I cannot 100 percent say it was intentionally set at this point because we haven’t eliminated all accidental means,” King said.
A final report on the fire, one of the largest in Sparks, hasn’t been completed yet, he said.
Officials said earlier that video from a surveillance camera at a nearby home show six people and two vehicles in the area just prior to the fire.
Electricity and gas were not turned on at the clubhouse at the time of the fire, officials said.
The clubhouse, which opened in 2000, and the 18-hole D’Andrea golf course have been closed since 2012, drawing criticism from homeowners in the east Sparks development. The clubhouse had been the target of repeated vandalism since the closure.
