REDFORD (WWJ) - A golf club in Redford has been destroyed by a fast burning fire. 

The fire broke out early Friday morning at the nearly 100-year-old Western Golf and Country Club on Kinloch, in a residential neighborhood near Beech Daly just south of 5 Mile Road, and quickly consumed the clubhouse. 

Thick, black smoke billowing from the fire can be seen from multiple area freeways.

It appears the fire started in the kitchen area and then spread through the building, though a cause wasn't immediately clear. 

Fire departments from Livonia and Southfield are assisting at the scene.

No injuries have been reported. 

Andy Arena, the club's vice president, said the golf course and pool will be open for business once the fire is out completely. 

"None of our employees or members were hurt and thank God, no firefighters were hurt," Arena told WWJ's Mike Campbell. "We'll move our staff down to other buildings and, as you see, the golf team is out there working on the course and the pool will be open as soon as we can. This is a resilient club and we will rebuild this clubhouse. But I guarantee you this weekend there will be golfers on the course."
