Assistant Chief Cliff Holzer of the Wilmington Fire Department, told WPTZ that the location of the fire was difficult to reach. But he said crews were able to take advantage of equipment at the site, using the giant guns that help to create artificial snow for skiers to attack the fire.

Scott Christiansen, vice president of the Olympic Regional Development Authority, the state agency that manages the lodge, said the building was destroyed.

The weather has also proved deadly, blamed for at least seven confirmed deaths across the country, and one in Canada.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said three people were killed in two separate water-related incidents in heavily flooded Bollinger County, south of St. Louis, on Saturday.

Two boys, ages 5 and 8, drowned near Patton when the vehicle they were riding in was swept off a flooded road, the patrol said, and a Louisiana man was killed when his vehicle was swept into the Whitewater River.

In Arizona, two children, both about 5 years old, were found dead Saturday after they were reported missing when a vehicle was swept up a creek in Tonto Basin, about 50 miles northeast of Phoenix, the sheriff's office said. Crews were still searching Sunday for a 6-year-old girl.

A 6-year-old boy died after he fell and struck his head when snow-removal equipment being driven by his father lurched in unincorporated Provo Canyon on Friday morning, the Utah County Sheriff's Office said. The boy's 9-year-old brother was unhurt in the incident, in which authorities said their father wasn't at fault.

In Canada, one person died in Ontario after the same storm caused a 30 car pile-up on a busy highway as the road conditions deteriorated.

And in South Dakota, a man was killed early Friday when he lost control of his pickup truck on an ice-covered road near Cavour, in Beadle County, the state highway patrol said. Two other people in the truck weren't seriously injured.

Near Chamberlain, South Dakota, in Brule County, investigators were also trying to determine to what extent the rough weather played a role in the crash of a single-engine turboprop plane shortly after takeoff Saturday.

Nine people, including two children, were killed, the Brule County state's attorney's office said. The area was under a winter storm warning, with a few inches of snow having accumulated, the National Weather Service said.

While no official cause for the crash had been determined, "definitely we'll be looking into the weather conditions," Peter Knudson, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board, said.

An initial report isn't expected for about two weeks, Knudson said.
