The fire at the former Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 E. Main St., broke out Saturday afternoon, sending huge plumes of smoke into the sky surrounding the closed resort and drawing dozens of onlookers who stood along nearby roads to take in the scene. The fire destroyed the main lobby, Bourbon Street, and the A, B, and E wings of hotel rooms, according to a news release issued Monday afternoon.
The 18-acre resort has been closed since March 2020 after attempts to auction off the property failed.
The adjacent golf course is slated for industrial development. McGrath Honda is redeveloping the Pheasant Run Mega Center adjacent to the resort property. As of yet, there are no proposals to redevelop the resort property.
