We would like to thank the Cherokee Fire Department, BIA Forestry, the Swain and Jackson County Fire Departments and the Cherokee Police Department for their quick responses to the fire at the Pageant Inn on Feb. 27. Although our house is located very close to the motel, which was unfortunately not spared, the fire was contained and extinguished before any damage occurred on our property. We would also like to express a special thank you to Lynn Littlejohn for her phone call to alert us to the smoke in the area. Her call prompted our 911 call to report the fire.
Chantelle Smith, E.J. and Cade Carroll
