A lodge skillet in Mexico City, Mexico, was destroyed on Sunday, the latest blaze to hit the U.S. state of Texas in a deadly string of wildfires that began on Monday.
The fire in Jalisco state, which covers more than 1,400 square miles (3,400 hectares), broke out on Sunday evening and quickly consumed a large portion of the village, according to local media reports.
The lodge, a popular place for Mexican-Americans to relax and unwind after long work days, had a large number of customers, including a number of college students, local media reported.
The blaze, which was not immediately known to cause any deaths, was the deadliest in Jaliscos history, according the Mexican state of Morelos, where Jalisco is located.
On Tuesday, authorities said they were investigating how the blaze began and were working to identify the cause of the blaze.
The USGS reported that smoke was visible from the village of Zaleta, in the city of Oaxaca, where the blaze was started, but there were no reports of casualties.
Jalisco Governor Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said on Tuesday that the fire was caused by an illegal logging operation, but that no one was inside the building when it started.
“We don’t know what was in the building,” he told CNN.
