Sun Photo by Phil Gentry

Volunteer firefighters the St. James and Caney Branch Volunteer Fire Departments work to extinguish a fire early Sunday at the Meadow Creek Mountain Rustic Resort in Cocke County. Both departments and a disaster services unit from the Greene County Chapter of the American Red Cross were dispatched about 3 a.m. Sunday to assist Cocke County firefighters with fires that did extensive damage at the resort. The resort is located on Browns Chapel Road, about 20 miles from Greeneville and a few miles on the Cocke County side of the Greene County/Cocke County line. The popular Barnyard Bistro restaurant and the barn at the resort were destroyed; the fire also spread to some extent into the adjacent woods.

Destroy, Damage

Several Structures

STAFF WRITER

Multiple fires early Sunday morning destroyed or badly damaged structures at the Meadow Creek Mountain Rustic Resort in nearby Cocke County.

Two Greene County volunteer fire departments assisted Cocke County firefighters in battling the fires.

The St. James and Caney Branch Volunteer Fire Departments were paged at 3:31 a.m. on Sunday to assist the Parrottsville and Long Creek VFDs on multiple structures on fire at 961 Browns Chapel Road in Cocke County, according to Wesley Holt, chief of the St. James VFD.

"Units arrived to find the Meadow Creek Mountain Rustic Resort on fire," Holt wrote.

"The Barnyard Bistro restaurant, the general store and the Fiddlers Roost entertainment hall were all engulfed in flames upon arrival and efforts to extinguish the blaze were hampered by extremely high winds, which fanned the fire."

Fire units cleared the scene around 8 a.m. Sunday, Chief Holt said.

According to a Greeneville Sun article last August, the resort also had 13 cabins, and a horse stable.

It was not clear this morning what structures are still standing.

The cause of the fires remains under investigation.

The year-round resort as recently as 2006 comprised 105 acres that included the Barnyard Bistro restaurant, a lodge with six guest rooms and a central "great room."

The resort also included a 2,500 square-foot banquet room called "The Fiddlers Roost" with a stage and dance floor.

A disaster services unit from the Greene County Chapter of the American Red Cross also responded to the scene to provide rehabilitation assistance and refreshments to the firefighters who were battling the flames.
