BEMIDJI — A fire ripped through the dining hall of Oak Hills Bible Camp in Bemidji on Wednesday afternoon.

Oak Hills program director Brian Eastling reported smoke coming from the building when he arrived at the property south of Bemidji at about 3:30 p.m.

“If we hadn’t been here, it probably would have all gone up and spread,” Eastling said.
