— A fire burned down the pool house at a golf club owned by country singer Toby Keith early Wednesday.

The pool house at the Belmar Golf Club swimming pool caught fire about 12:30 a.m., and Moore firefighters put out the blaze, said Moore Fire Deputy Chief Gary Bird.

Flames were visible for about a mile from the golf course at 1025 E Indian Hills Road, Bird said. The club is near north Norman city limits. No injuries were reported.

Bird estimated the damage at $50,000 to $70,000.

The cause was under investigation Wednesday by the Moore fire investigator. The pool was closed Wednesday, but the golf course was open.
