Wildland Firefighting: TN Wildfire Destroys Dozens of Cabins

03/18/2013
Firefighters battled a fire that started Sunday in a cabin in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and spread to a number of nearby cabins. The wildland fire began around 4 p.m. at a cabin on Black Bear Cub Way and quickly spread to nearby structures, according to a WATE report (http://bit.ly/15hODmT). More than 100 acres are estimated to have burned. Wind has helped accelerate fire spread, and Pigeon Forge Fire Chief Tony Watson said propane tanks were exploding. Crews from 25 departments worked through the night battling the flames and were still at work Monday. About 150 residents and renters of nearby cabins were evacuated.
