Increased Fire Danger

Please be aware that there is an INCREASED FIRE DANGER for all of WKRK’s coverage area due to low relative humidity and gusty winds. As we saw from the fire in Pigeon Forge earlier this week that damaged or destroyed nearly 60 homes, a brush fire can quickly get out of hand in these conditions. Please be careful with outdoor burning today and tomorrow. Many of you have asked what a Red Flag watch/warning means. It is a product issued by the National Weather Service to warn of increase fire potential.

Feel free to share any post from the WKRK website that you feel is beneficial to your community. We encourage input from local law enforcement, government officials, emergency management officials, schools and other public service organizations. To send us information, use the form on our WKRK Info page.
