The entire city of Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the popular resort city in the Smokey Mountains, is engulfed in flames from a wildfire that threatens to destroy the entire town.  Residents and guests trying to flee the fire see their cars catch fire and must abandon them.

Guests are trapped inside the Hilton Hotel because the flames and high winds make it dangerous to evacuate.  By this time tomorrow, Gatlinburg could be a memory.

Dollywood and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies have been evacuated and the fear is that all 10,000 animals and fish in the aquarium could soon be dead.

Hotel guest Logan Baker, who is staying at the Hilton with his family, said that the 16-story building began filling with smoke as fire came up and into the parking lot.

‘The only road to get down from the hotel, trees had fallen down in the road and were just engulfed in flames,’ he told ABC affiliate Wate, in a phone call from the hotel. ‘Then the flames came up into the parking lot and then told us we all had stay inside.
