BREWSTER, Wash --  A 7,000 square foot community lodge at a luxury resort community near Lake Pateros was burned to the ground in the Carlton Complex fire.

Photos show flames shooting through the lodge sometime late Thursday or early Friday.

The website for the 3-thousand acre gated resort community says it includes the lodge, swimming pool, spa, tennis courts and nearby waterfont park.

Governor Inslee said the fire had grown to 168,000 acres by mid-day Friday.

"Simply put, there's a firestorm in Washington right now," said Inslee.
