Crystal Grottoes Fire

I was leaving the park today and as I crested the hill outside of Boonsboro I was greeted with the sight of a pillar of smoke and lots of emergency vechicles. I had my camera.

Crystal Grottoes has been a tourist attraction for decades. Regular visitors to Antietam will remember the "This is it!" sign posted at the entrance. Apparently there were no injuries, though a great amount of damage to the structure that serves as the offices and entryway for the cavern itself.
