Watch the dramatic video of the huge fire tearing through the Lighthouse Leisure holiday complex in Southerness:
The Lighthouse Leisure site holds around 220 caravans and holiday makers and residents have been left without power and water due to the fire.
Many of the residents were asked to leave their caravans during the night, but have since been allowed to return.
Dumfries and Galloway Council say they are working with the site owner and other agencies to secure the site and put temporary power and water supplies in place.
The Council’s DGFirst has also deployed two catering units to provide welfare support.
Hundreds holidaymakers and locals were staying in caravans surrounding the fire.
Many of them were woken from their beds and asked to vacate their caravans.
"It was terrifying. We were asleep in bed when someone knocked on our door and asked us to get out because there was another caravan on fire.
"We turned the corner, looked at the complex, and there was nothing left apart from the pillars. It is awful."
The police and fire services are launching a joint investigation into the cause of the fire, but say at this stage it is not being treated as suspicious.
More than 30 firefighters have tackled a huge fire at a holiday complex on the Solway Coast.
Five fire engines attended the blaze at The Mermaid Leisure Complex, which is part of Lighthouse Leisure, in the seaside resort of Southerness.
The fire was discovered shortly after midnight and flames could be seen for miles.
Nobody was injured in the fire but the swimming pool, bar, restaurant and leisure facilities were all destroyed.
Thousands of holidaymakers visit the popular coastal resort every summer.
Reed beds which were destroyed in the arson attacks at Siddick Pond Nature Reserve in April appear to be recovering extremely well.
More than half of the reed beds were set alight during a spate of nuisance fires and there were fears that they would be unable to recover from such devastation.
However, chairman of the nature reserve, Bill Bacon, is impressed with the regrowth:
"It has been really remarkable how nature has bounced back.
"We still have a long way before we are back to full strength but next year we are confident all the animals and birds who fled the fire will return."
The large fire at the Siddick Pond Nature Reserve, near Dunmail Park on Maryport Road, spread along reed beds and gorse.
As a result, many birds were displaced during the sensitive nesting season.
However, there is now good news for the Friends of Siddick Pond as the reed beds have grown to around a foot high.
Chairman Bill Bacon says he thinks they will be fully re-generated by next spring.

"We're very pleased. It's coming on well, especially for wildlife. We hope by next year it will grow back to what it was like before."
Siddick Pond is owned and managed by Allerdale District Council with a little help from the Friends group.
Reed beds destroyed in a nuisance fire at a Workington nature reserve have started to grow back.
Siddick Pond was badly damaged in April during a spate of arson attacks on several pieces of grassland in west Cumbria.
More than 40 firefighters spent over three hours tackling the blaze at the site of special scientific interest.
Shortly after 5:30pm the first fire was reported near the Newton Gardens Filling Station on Glasgow Road. Ten square metres of bush land had already been destroyed before fire fighters were able to extinguish the flames.
A second smaller fire was discovered on the verge of Irongray Road shortly before 7pm. the Fire Service believe that both may have been set deliberately and are warning that in the current warm spell more damage could easily have been done as grass fires can quickly get out of hand.
Firefighters were called to a fire at Gosforth Church of England Primary School at 7.55am this morning (14th May).
Fire crews found that the incident involved an electrical fire on an immersion heater.
Nobody was injured and an investigation is underway into the cause of the fire.
