Vernon Township Fire Department was first to respond to Dutch Hollow Golf Club in Durand on Tuesday afternoon shortly before 3pm, on a kitchen fire call, multiple sources told Durand Now. Mutual aid was requested, bringing out departments from Durand, Shiawassee and Venice Townships.
Onlookers wouldn't know there was any trouble at all. From the outside, the golf course appears as pristine as usual.
