SILVER LAKE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Fire destroyed a popular inn and restaurant in Susquehanna County.

Flames started at Brackney Inn near the New York state line just after 4 p.m. Saturday.

Video shared on Facebook shows smoke pouring from the business.

Officials tell Newswatch 16 the place is a total loss.

This isn't the first time Brackney Inn burned. Flames destroyed the place back in October. The owners have been working to rebuild and were set to reopen this summer.

"Gonna be another tragic loss like before. This is gonna be even more because I knew the people rebuilding it. I was actually gonna be a part of the rebuilding. It's gonna be a big loss, gonna be tough for everyone around here," said Paul Kovitch of Silver Lake Township.

A state police fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
