A wildfire that has spread through the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains continues to affect several areas of Sevier County, including Dollywood.
An assessment Tuesday morning (Nov. 29) revealed no damage to the Dollywood park itself but more than a dozen cabins managed through Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins were damaged or destroyed, Dollywood officials said in a statement.
As the cities continue to assess the damage and impact of the fires, Dollywood has suspended park operation beginning Wednesday, November 30. The park will reopen on Friday, Dec. 2. Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort will be open on a limited basis for those in need and for registered guests.
Last night (Nov. 28), resort staff evacuated families in 50 rooms staying at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort and families staying in 19 cabins at Dollywood’s Smoky Mountain Cabins.
TEMA officials estimate more than 14,000 residents and visitors were displaced due to the wildfire in Sevier County.
