Dunlap firefighters tell their experiences in Gatlinburg fire zone
DUNLAP, Tenn. (WDEF) – A Dunlap firefighting strike team returned from Gatlinburg where they were sent to help battle the wild fires.
Over 100 fire departments lent aid in the Gatlinburg effort, and the Dunlap volunteer department was proud to be part of that number.
Firefighter Chris Walker tells us it’s hard to imagine the devastation they dealt with there.
“Everything that we saw, it’s nothing short of a miracle that number’s not higher than what it is already. With everything that just is completely gone in that city.”
