I think the one burning now is a different fire that began yesterday afternoon. The Dollywood fire IIRC was started by the train. This is very steep terrain and that makes access and fighting difficult. The winds been up in East Tennessee the past few days and things haven't greened up yet. IOW dead leaves on the ground from last fall and very dry due to wind. We're supposed to get rain this morning and later through the day and night. I'm about an hours drive from the fire I'm guessing.

I believe it is Black Bear Ridge neighborhood...just off Lost Branch, off Wears Valley.

My family was just in a cabin last week on Black Bear Cub Way in this neighborhood. We are SO devastated for these families.

The homes are mostly vacation rentals and a large portion of these homes are run by EdenCrest. It's a wonderful, God-fearing group of people...and my heart and soul prays for them

After looking at a map of Lost Branch Road, Pigeon Forge, TN, and seeing its location off Highway 321 and west of Highway 441, I can see that its a few miles away from Dollywood.

Fire destroys dozens of cabins, threatens more near Pigeon Forge, Mar. 17, 2013 @ 09:08 PM states:

I was driving through Arkansas last week and saw more than a handful of brush fires on the way— one running along a ditch just below the shoulder of the road. I agree with you about the dry material and strong winds.
