Firefighters contain 10-acre brush fire at Dollywood

Posted | Contributed by rollergator

Fire crews have contained a 10-acre brush fire on Dollywood property tonight with no structures threatened, theme park officials said. Crews from all 13 fire departments in Sevier County were at Dollywood fighting the brush fire that apparently was started by the park’s train as it passed through some woods around 4:40 p.m.

I was just reading this when here on our noon news there was a story about wildfires raging out of control in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville. There were shots of one of those big hillside cabin/condo resorts with many structures engulfed in flames (Bear Ridge Resort?)
Just awful. Is it still very dry there? We've had nothing but rain recently.

Lets hope the fire never got to thunderhead!

The fire "at" DW has been extinguished, everything at the park is fine. The new fire in the PF area is several miles away, on Wears Valley Rd.

Is thunderhead fine?

I would tend to think that Thunderhead falls under the "everything at Dollywood" category.

The firefighters sprinted to the park in record time, thank goodness. ;-)

And we knew everything was going to be okay when that first drop of water hit...

Luckily they had fastpasses, or they'd still be waiting to put it out.

Was that a burn?

I hope you don't MINE but this fire was a MYSTERY.

I hope the AFTERBURN doesn't do any damage to the park.

I think this fire was BEAST-ly and scarey.

No, I'd say you're on a winning streak. Your posts make me feel good.

As good as the first drop on Raging Bull's first drop?

Why do you bring that up?

Raven-Phile's avatar

Because it's the best first drop of any first drop anywhere. Plus, it has a great, great tunnel.

You a kind of being tool-ish right now

He's not 'kinda' being toolish right now, he's totally being toolish right now.

And it's wonderful.
