Fire crews battle massive fire in Pigeon Forge, TN

Posted: Updated:

PIGEON FORGE, TN (CNN) - Nearly three dozen cabins have gone up in flames as a wildfire continues to spread in eastern Tennessee.

The massive fire started in the brush, Sunday afternoon. The more than 200 acres burned in Pigeon Forge was more than enough to cause a tremendous amount of damage. The fire ignited nearby cabins, burning at least 35 of them completely. Some 25 fire departments arrived to help.

People living in nearby cabins have been evacuated; authorities also suggest others living nearby get out at well. The National Guard will fly in two helicopters today to help battle the massive wildfire.
