the fire was no where near the stables. I came across the fire while bike riding there and the fire dept had it under control.

Does anyone know if the Jellystone Park Resort was affected? My own family loves that place. We go there a couple times a year. It would be a big loss if it burned down.

EUREKA, MO (KTVI - FOX2now.com )- A massive brush fire was raging right next to Six Flags in Eureka Wednesday afternoon and into the evening. Firefighters raced to stop it before it could reach the amusement park. They were still checking on flareups after dark at the 8-10 acre fire scene in Greensfelder Park near the Eureka/Wildwood city limits.

EUREKA IS NOT "WILDWOOD" EUREKA IS EUREKA AND ALWAYS WILL BE EUREKA.

wake up yourself. Greensfelder Park is entirely within Wildwood city limits. Eureka is adjacent to Wildwood. The reporter stated that the fire was on the Eureka-Wildwood border, but it had crossed into Six Flags property, which is in Eureka.

I was there right after the Fire Dept left and the fire was not "massive", but could've been huge if not for the work of the fire crews.

I am the mountain biker who told them the fire was not out, so they sent the crew back in. We saw several logs burning with flames about 1 foot high.

Only underbrush and dead logs really burned. It never got hot enough to kill the mature trees. The wind was actually blowing everything away from Six Flags, so it was never really threatened.

This is several miles from Jellystone.
