Oh My! Stunning Video of Man’s Escape from #Gatlinburg Fire Goes Viral – “Hit the Gas!”

14,000 Gatlinburg area residents were evacuated as a fire stormed through the mountains, burning down everything in its path. The fire is being called “historic” by emergency services and shows little sign of letting up.

Rain is now falling and firefighters have stepped up their game, but the fire rages on.
