NORTH READING, Mass. (WHDH) - A fire in North Reading early Saturday morning burned a golf course's maintenance garage to the ground.

Police and fire crews responded to the Thomson Country Club Golf Course after calls came in at around 2:10 a.m. Calls reported multiple explosions coming from inside the structure and the building was engulfed in flames.
