The first indoor waterpark in Illinois caught fire early this morning.

WGN reports that multiple fire departments raced to Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Resort in Utica, IL to battle a blaze that's been labeled as a 5 alarm fire.

The resort, about an hour and a half from Rockford, was reported to have "flames coming from the lodge." and later stated by WIFR news flames were also seen near the resorts pools too.

Here's live footage of the fire.


The fire crews are having difficulty battling the blaze as the water dousing the fire is freezing causing ice and salt trucks have been called in to help as well.

The good news is that no injuries have been reported and all guests ans workers have been evacuated from the resort.


At this time there is no information on what caused the fire.
