Explorers help burn former Watt residence


As flames and smoke draw reach toward the sky, members of Rural/Metro Explorers and firefighters keep the blaze in check during a controlled burning exercise of the 12700 Kingston Pike boyhood home of businessman and former Vice Mayor Bob Watt Saturday, Aug. 21.

The 3 p.m. blaze attracted many passersby as the house was removed to make way for the Renaissance, a 21-acre development proposed by Knick and Noah Myers of Myers Brothers Holdings. Myers said the 150,000 square foot development will feature a campus-like setting with the existing stream on the property left intact. Myers said construction on the development is slated to begin by the end of 2004, with completion on its first building by the end of 2005.
