OGEMAW COUNTY -- A massive fire broke out early Wednesday morning at a local Ogemaw County business.

Smoke started pouring out of Mem & Pop's Driftwood bowling alley, 1958 Greenwood Rd. in Prescott, near Skidway Lake, at 12:40 a.m., according to Mills Township Fire Chief Brian Gilbert.

Gilbert said 10 neighboring fire departments reported to the scene to fight the fire, but the building was completely destroyed.

The business was not open at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
