Dollywood escapes wildfire damage

Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, USA

High winds and extreme drought conditions sparked wildfires in the Great Smoky Mountains surrounding Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but Dollywood theme park, its Splash Country water park and DreamMore Resort were spared any damage.
Overnight staff evacuated families staying in 50 of the resort’s rooms and 19 of the park’s Smoky Mountain Cabins, some of which were damaged or destroyed by the fires.
