Due to the Level III – State of Emergency in the Eastern region of the State because of the wildfires in Sevier County, the Tennessee Department of Correction has deployed several agents to assist emergency personnel in the area. These officers will work with teams on the ground to identify blocked roads due to downed trees. The team will also perform “welfare checks” of residents in the vicinity of the fire.
Officials now say that three people were killed in the Gatlinburg fires. The deceased reportedly died at three different locations. Their names had not been released as of 4:15 p.m. CT Tuesday.. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency reports that more than 14,000 residents and visitors were forced to evacuate Sevier County on Monday night due to devastating wildfires in-and-around the cities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The Chimney Top Fire, which began in the Great Smoky Mountains, spread very rapidly yesterday evening as high winds pushed flames onto private property. Three persons with severe burns were transferred form University of Tennessee’s Knoxville (UTK) hospital to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville overnight. A fourth with burns to their face continues to be evaluated at UTK. As of 3:30 p.m. CT on Tuesday, the death toll was at 3. Several people remain missing. Overnight, more than 4 dozen people went to area hospitals for treatment of fire related injuries. The National Guard was mobilized to Sevier County Monday as fire damaged or destroyed 150 structures in Sevier County, including a 16-story hotel on Regan Drive, and the Driftwood Apartments near the Park Vista Hotel, according to WVLT. Governor Haslam said the Sevier County fire is the largest that Tennessee has seen in 100 years. The Mayor of Gatlinburg said Tuesday, "We are going to rebuild our town and do whatever we can for our citizens." On Tuesday, a curfew was put in place in Gatlinburg from 6 p.m. to 6 p.m. and the roads into the city remained closed to thru traffic.
Donations to the Gatlinburg Relief Fund can be made at any SmartBank or mailed to PO Box 1910, Pigeon Forge, TN, 37868.
