A structure at the Tapatio Springs resort caught fire Monday night, resulting in a total loss to a building at the newly purchased country club.

Kendall County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Fincke said the spa and fitness center between the children’s and adult pool at the resort is a total loss after it caught fire at about 9 p.m. Monday and burned for several hours. He said the fire was contained to just the one structure, but he said there may be some minor smoke damage to surrounding buildings.

Several emergency agencies responded to the fire, including the Boerne Fire Department, Bergheim Volunteer Fire Department, Comfort VFD, Leon Springs VFD, a Kendall County medic unit, the county fire marshal and Kendall County emergency management.

First responders currently are investigating the cause of the fire, but Fincke confirmed nobody was in the building at the time of the fire as that facility is locked at 2 p.m. No injuries were reported. Fire crews remained on the scene Tuesday.

This is the second fire to ravage a structure at the resort as a 2017 fire took down the former restaurant, leading to the former owners constructing La Cascada Table and Bar.

The resort was purchased earlier this month by the Crescent Hotel and Resort Group, and a deed filed with the Kendall County Clerk shows an LR TAP LLC officially purchasing the property June 2 with European Investment Management Services identified.
