    Gatlinburg, TN Wildfire

    So, the town of Gatlinburg, TN is on fire now. NWS issued a mandatory evacuation of the town, and suspects somewhere around 500 acres are burning currently. The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is next to town, and there aren't a lot of roads to get around, so rescue and firefighting are hindered by lack of mobility.

    twitter search has a lot of pictures of the fire and what's going on.

    This is where I've taken vacations with the GF for the past several years. Not looking good for any of the areas we normally hiked at. I'm finding the pictures fascinating, in a disturbing kinda way. I know these places. Really feel for everyone there.

    Wow that vid is crazy. Hopefully they can get that in control soon - or some rather cold weather with moisture makes it down there. Curious as to what caused it?

    A lot of speculation is arson. Whether it was on purpose, a campfire not properly put out, or a cigarette butt thrown out the window, is anyone's guess.
