As some residents of Gatlinburg, Tenn., return to their fire-ravaged city, churches and other charities are gearing up to help.
Wildfires in eastern Tennessee destroyed nearly 18,000 acres and 700 homes and businesses and killed at least 13 people. The fires began last Wednesday along Chimney Tops Trail, a popular hiker destination in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
