Several units from the Western Taney County Fire Protection District respond to a fire near Big Cedar Lodge Tuesday night.
According to a post on the District’s Facebook Page, units arrived on the scene around 10:00 pm to find flames coming from the roof of one of the cabins at the Wilderness Club on Lindell Drive. Firefighters knocked down some of the fire outside before entering the cabin an finding an area around the chimney also on fire. The fire was brought under control in about 15 minutes.
No injuries were reported due to the fire which started from sparks coming out of the flue which set the surrounding shingles on fire.
