Check out This Incredible Image of the Iconic Cobbs Creek Clubhouse Covered in Ice

After battling a fire that broke out Monday night, the Cobbs Creek Clubhouse was left encapsulated in ice on the blistering-cold Tuesday morning. Philadelphia Inquirer staff photographer Alejandro Alvarez snapped this epic shot of the clubhouse, which is located at the historic Cobbs Creek Golf Course. Before it welcomed golf greats like Arnold Palmer, the clubhouse was a farmland mansion until the course was built in 1916, according to the Inky article. Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire, and it's unknown whether the clubhouse will be restored.

The photo reminds us of last year's epic photos of the Locust Medical Center Building that also became sheathed in ice after a fire destroyed the building during freezing temperatures. Fortunately in both cases, no one was injured in the fire.
