A wind-swept wildfire raged across Tennessee's Great Smoky Mountains National Park on November 29th.

The flames destroyed dozens of homes in resort towns, and forced thousands of residents to flee.

Authorities said at least 14 fires were burning across the area outside of Knoxville.

More than 150 structures were burned in Sevier county. The fires came dangerously close to Pigeon Forge.

The town's main attraction is Dollywood, named after country superstar Dolly Parton..
