GLOUCESTER, Va. (WAVY) — A fire damaged a storage building of Yogi Bear’s Jelly Stone Park Resort in Gloucester Point, early Wednesday.
Abingdon Volunteer Fire officials tell 10 On Your Side they got a call around 5:45 a.m. for a fire at the resort. Crews got on scene and found that the storage building was on fire.
There were two 200-gallon tanks outside the shed — one that contained diesel and one with gasoline. Crews worked to keep the flames away from the tanks. Meanwhile, they used a backhoe to open a garage door on the back of the building so they could have more access to the fire. Soon after, the roof began collapsing and firefighters were pulled from the building.
The fire was marked under control within 20 minutes and it did not spread to other structures. A total of 24 firefighters responded.
No injuries were reported but the structure is a complete loss, according to officials.
The cause is under investigation.
