Wildfire swept through the Tennessee resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge Monday night, torching over 100 buildings so far, including this condo development. The area is adjacent to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, one of the most beautiful areas in the United States. No deaths or injuries have been reported at present, but thousands scrambled to get away; fire lined the highway that’s the main escape route. Ongoing drought in the Southeastern USA is largely to blame. (Grundy County Herald)
