Death Valley, CA (KTNV) -- Scotty's Castle is scheduled to reopen on Thursday, May 30, after a fire burned 15 acres of vegetation north of the castle.

Scotty's Castle is a Spanish-style mansion built in the 1930s, which hosts daily history tours.

Tours will resume in the morning of May 30 for on-site visitors and reservation holders.

Crews from the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service assisted the National Park Service crew who responded on May 22. The fire was contained on May 23.

No injuries were reported and only minor damage to one outbuilding on the castle grounds was sustained during the fire.

The cause is still under investigation.
