Forest fires flare across East Tennessee as drought continues

Nathan Waters, state of Tennessee assistant district forester, said crews are battling fires in several counties. The most severe of which is near Stony Fork in Campbell County where a fire threatened three homes and damaged a shed earlier Saturday afternoon before being corralled.

Waters said there also were fires in Blount County and Hancock County, as well as a large fire near the Chimney Tops mountain.
