Default The Gatlinburg fires

Pretty incredible. Beautiful at night and tragic at the same time.

Literally was just there nov 12 through the 16th. My first time up there. Loved every bit of it. Meet locals and made some friends and am deeply saddened. I mean the places that they are listing, I was just there.

Here's a scary video of some folks that had to drive through the fires to safety. Some language, so be forewarned. Praying for all those affected.

Man that's rough. Gatlinburg was always a bit too tourist trap for me. But hate to see all the homes destroyed and people impacted.

it has been raining cats and dogs here in Kingsport (about 50 miles from Gatlinburg)...I am praaying that they are getting this rain. It has been going hard non=stop since last night.

I must say, Gatlinburg is touristy but I really like some things that surround it...mainly leconte lodge. I was glad the hear that it has not been impacted at this time

Sorry if this shouldn't be posted in this thread (please delete if so), but I have a question.

Since the fire was allegedly started by someone and people have died as a result, will that person be charged with something like involuntary man-slaughter?

The whole town hasn't burned, has it? We used to go there as children and stay at the Rocky Waters Motel.

Very upsetting. I am praying for all the people and families involved. I went there quite a bit when I was younger. After backpacking and hiking for days, Gatlinburg was like NYC when you got back to civilization. We had a blast there many times. I hope the town survives this tragedy without too many lost lives.

I would guess it would be similar circumstances to arson of a structure and a person dies in such a fire. I'm sure the autopsy results will come into play in making any decision as far as charges with regards to those that died in the fires.
