KENT, Conn. (AP) — Two cabins suffered heavy damage, but nobody was injured in a fire at a vacation camp in Kent.

The fire broke out Thursday morning in a guest cabin and spread to another at Club Getaway, a 300-acre camp located on Leonard Pond.

Camp officials said in a statement that staff members were able to evacuate the cabins shortly after the fire was reported, and guests staying in the buildings were evaluated at the scene and released.

The camp did not say how many guests were displaced.

There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire. Crews from several towns responded and used water pumped water from the nearby lake.

The camp bills itself as a destination for sports and adventure programs, weddings and corporate events.
