The Tennessee resort towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are reeling Tuesday morning after mass evacuations were ordered as several wildfires in the Great Smoky Mountains quickly advanced on the area, burning dozens of homes and businesses.
According to a tweet posted by WBIR, more than 100 homes were destroyed in the Cobbly Nob area of Gatlinburg and at least 14,000 were evacuated from Gatlinburg alone overnight.
“The center of Gatlinburg looks good for now,” Newmansville Volunteer Fire Department Lt. Bobby Balding told The Knoxville News-Sentinel Tuesday. “It’s the apocalypse on both sides (of downtown).”
Residents were told to evacuate around 9 p.m. Monday and included Gatlinburg, parts of Pigeon Forge and areas along the Spur, according to WATE.com. Just over an hour later, some 30 structures were on fire in Gatlinburg, including a 16-story hotel, emergency officials told the Associated Press.
