Here's the earliest report of the fire, but supposedly they got that one under control.

I believe they are completely unrelated.

The neighborhood on fire now is off Wears Valley Road.

We were just in one of these lovely cabins last week. My heart goes out to these families. It's a beautiful neighborhood run by some of the nicest people around.

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.
