A brush fire burned property at the Dollywood theme park in East Tennessee, but a park official says the fire will not affect the season opening next weekend.
Pigeon Forge Fire Department crews were fighting the fire at Dollywood until about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night and a few firefighters remained on the site overnight for observation.
Park spokesman Pete Owens says that visitors who come to the opening next weekend might see the side of the hill that burned, but there was no real property damage.
He said the fire began about 4:40 p.m. on Saturday and was probably ignited by a stray ember from the park's train. It spread through about 10 acres of wooded area.
Early reports say at least 35 cabins were burned in the brush fire.
