Fire at Cowboy Cookout Barbecue Restaurant
According to early witness accounts on social media, the fire started near the Cowboy Cookout Barbecue restaurant in Frontierland. The area is being gradually evacuated and closed to the public while emergency services respond to the fire. “Technical issues” are being cited by cast members to justify the closure.

Per latest information, the fire was quickly contained and the restaurant structure does not appear threatened. A large part of the area is expected to remain closed for the day. The Cowboy Cookout Barbeque itself will likely remain closed for a longer period for investigations and repairs. According to several witnesses, the fire started near the restaurant’s chimney, which serves barbecue dishes. Nearby Colonel Hathi’s Outpost has also been evacuated during the firefighting effort.
On social networks, many internet users have shared images and videos of the fire.
