More than 60 rental cabins were damaged in a blaze near Pigeon Forge.

Sevier County officials said the blaze started around 4 p.m. on March 17, 2013 as a single house fire on Black Bear Cub Way. The fire then ignited the other cabins nearby. Twenty-five fire departments are on the scene. They say several other residential homes are in danger if the fire jumps a nearby ridge.

When on vacation always remember to be safe. Please help us protect our Great Smoky Mountains, don't leave fires unattended. Remember the words of Smokey The Bear...  "Only you can prevent forest fires".
