A powerful and deadly storm moving through Lake Middle triggered a tornado that touched down in Oak Ridge, Tenn., drawing a swath of destruction that stretched for miles across the city. The early morning storm also damaged homes and downed trees in rural central Alabama, where the National Weather Service reported wind speeds of 97 mph and issued a severe thunderstorm warning for parts of Knoxville, Nashville and other cities. A tornado ripped through Nashville on Tuesday morning, destroying at least 40 buildings and killing at least 19 people, the Tennessee Department of Public Safety said.
The Tennessee Disaster Management Agency (TEMA) is also working with several state departments to coordinate disaster response efforts, Oak Ridge Today reported. The Springfield Fire Department has won multiple awards for helping citizens on a charity trip, collecting and repairing new and broken toys so children have a better Christmas. This is also one of the few towns that has had a fire engine every year since 1910.
Oak Ridge, Tennessee, was approved by Gen. Leslie Groves in 1942, and Oak Ridge Today reported that Haslam later described the wildfire as the largest to occur in Tennessee in the last 100 years. The state is providing coordinated resources, including the Nat'l Guard, to help Gatlinburg and those affected by the devastating fires in the GSMNP. So far, wildfires have destroyed more than 1,000 acres of forest and a number of buildings, according to the Tennessee Department of Natural Resources.

In many cases of fire damage, it is necessary to break open missing windows and walls and lay tarpaulins over damaged roofs. Carefully inspect all ancillary rooms on your property to determine the extent of fire, smoke and soot damage. The extent of the fire and smoke damage can be determined by examining the affected areas and checking the adjoining room for smoke or soot damage as well as for damage to the outside of your house and the property itself. You can also determine the extent of damage in terms of building fabric and fire or fire potential - for example, by examining the affected areas and checking adjacent rooms such as windows, doors, walls, ceilings and sills for possible smoke / SOOT damage; and inspect all adjacent rooms and objects for damage or smoke and examine them closely to determine how much damage they have been damaged. You can also determine structural damage and its fire / fire potential by examining the surrounding areas, especially the affected area.
In the 1930s and early 1940s, the County Jail caught fire in an attic, and part of the roof had to be removed to allow the fire to be extinguished before inmates marched out. The fire brigade now has salvage blankets that can be placed over the contents to protect it from fire and water damage. In that case, a garbage container caught fire, but the rest of the store suffered minimal heat and smoke damage, the Tennessee Department of Public Safety said.
