A Pigeon Forge theater is saying thank you to the hundreds of emergency personnel who battled that huge fire on a mountain in Wears Valley earlier this week.
The fire destroyed 160 acres and damaged or destroyed 81 structures at Black Bear Ridge Resort off Wears Valley Road. Rain finally helped extinguish the flames Monday afternoon that firefighters had been battling for almost 24 hours.
To show their appreciation, The Comedy Barn is inviting those emergency workers and their families to attend the Friday evening show free of charge. You are asked to arrive by 7:30 pm and the show begins at 8:15 pm. There is more information on the Comedy Barn's Facebook page.
You are asked to bring an ID showing your membership with an emergency agency.
