Suspicious! Equipment Staged Ahead of Huge Blaze In Tennessee, National Guard Called In

By Ukshep, 11/29/2016

Firefighters are desperately battling the fire which covers an area of the Great Smoky Mountains located beside the town of Gatlinburg, popular with tourists due to its close proximity to Dollywood theme park.

Arson has been suspected, which has led to an evacuation of residents to a Red Cross shelter at Gatlinburg Community Center and a converted shelter at a local sports facility.

"Nobody is allowed into the city at this time," the National Weather Service Morristown Tennessee tweeted. "Evacuate immediately and follow any instructions from emergency officials."
