The historic Walking Horse Hotel in Wartrace caught fire on Monday. Fire crews had to tape it and nearby buildings off on the following Tuesday morning.

Crews believe the fire started on the second floor of the music hall and hotel on Spring Street in Wartrace just before 8 p.m.

The second and third floors sustained smoke damage. A water line also broke on the second floor, leading to water damage on the first.


The initial investigation suggests the fire was not suspicious in nature.

The hotel, currently for sale, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


Firefighters from Bell Buckle, Flat Creek and the Bedford County Fire Department main headquarters backed up Wartrace.
