News video: Gatlinburg Wildfire Evacuees Have Close Call as Blaze Closes In

A wildfire raging in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park threatened downtown Gatlinburg and the surrounding area on November 28-29.

These dramatic videos document Michael Luciano’s harrowing escape from Chalet Village. According to Knoxville New Sentinel, as of Monday evening, the fire had spread more than 500 acres, prompting immediate evacuations in Gatlinburg’s Mynatt Park neighborhood, East Foothills Road, Turkey Nest Road, Davenport Road and Savage Gardens areas. This video was filmed in a vehicle attempting to flee the blaze.

The footage shows the vehicle being forced to turn back towards the blaze by a blocked road.

A second video was added later, when the vehicle had safely evaded the blaze, but not before some pretty hair-raising encounters.
