This is happening during one of the busiest West End weekends as the Lutsen 99er is taking place. 

According to a statement on the Lutsen Mountains Facebook page, "Sadly, we lost our beloved Papa Charlie's restaurant today in a fire. We thank the six local volunteer fire departments that responded keeping the fire contained to the Papa Charlie's building and keeping everyone safe.
All of our servers and network equipment were housed in that location, so resort communication will be limited until we can get that restored. We will update how this impact operations as we get more information."
