Fire on the Mountain

Fire broke out yesterday at around 11 a.m. on Buffalo Mountain in Johnson City, TN. Forestry officials thought they had it under control at one point and sent fire crews home -- but the fire flared up again last night. The cause is not yet known. To read more, click here.

Update: Thick smoke continued to blanket Johnson City today...Hopefully today's rains have helped to firefighters to bring the blaze under control. Here is an updated story from the Johnson City Press and a video of the fire.

  1. That fire is crazy me and a couple friends drove up there and it was up to the road at some points, and it likely hopped over it. We got some up-close photos I put them here if your interested. Low quality but cool,
