Blarney Island is burning!! FALSE ALARM.........

Just got a call from my Brother who said he was driving on Grass Lake RD and saw Blarneys on fire! Wow, if it burns down I cannot see how they will be allowed to rebuild and it would mark the end of an era............

Geez, its amazing how a news organization can mis-report things like this. I called my Brother and he said that from the angle that he was seeing, it looked like the island was burning. Who knows, I'm in Florida where I belong.....................

Your brother might have seen smoke from the generators firing up. I saw this had a heart attack, jumed in the boat, and ran out there. I talked to Clem he said people started calling right after the fired the gens - they blow a ton of white smoke when they start up. As the article states - all good out there no fire.

Yeah, it sure would suck. They said it was a trailer or something. I started going there in the late 70s' so I guess that makes me old too??
