VIDEO: On Tuesday morning, firefighters responded to a fire at Galice Resort, the iconic restaurant and store situated along the Rogue River to the northwest of Merlin. Austin Prince from Rural Metro Fire confirmed to NewsWatch 12 that the structure was "fully involved," as firefighters responded to the two-alarm fire. The agency later posted an update, saying that people should avoid the area to prevent congestion as fire crews work on the major fire incident. According to fire officials at the scene, the building is a total loss. Some of the rafts and nearby vehicles were salvaged from the fire, but the building itself and most of its contents were destroyed. Mary Lou Thomason told NewsWatch 12 that her daughter, and now owner of Galice Resort Debbie Thomason, was working at the Resort when the fire began, although she did not see what caused it.
