TOFTE, Minn. (AP) Just as the summer tourism season is getting started, a fire has damaged five units at the popular Bluefin Bay resort.

No one was injured.

The fire happened Saturday afternoon, and took firefighters roughly eight hours to put it out.

Dennis Rysdahl is general manager and owner of Bluefin Bay, which is located along the Lake Superior shore about 80 miles northeast of Duluth. He says as many as 100 guests were evacuated during the fire. By nightfall, guests in the damaged units were sent to other lodging, and other guests were allowed to return to their units.

There is no official word on what caused the fire.
