On August 22, 2012 one of our guests came to the rig shortly after 5 p.m. to tell us they could see smoke billowing down in Branson. This is what we saw standing on the road in the campground by our overlooks. It was quite amazing.
And in 35 minutes the fire was out and all that was left was smoke billowing into the air.
Later we were able to find out it was the Queen Anne II just of the strip in Branson. The next day we drove down to see what it looked like and it was amazing to see the siding on those apartments that were across the street had melted. Fortunately no one was hurt in the fire.
