GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee mayor is confirming another fatality in the wildfires that swept through the Great Smoky Mountains, raising the death toll to four.
Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters also said Wednesday that nearly four dozen people had been injured in the fires.
The wildfires destroyed more than 150 buildings. Heavy rain fell early Wednesday, which is helping put out some of the wildfires, but officials say more than 200 firefighters are still out battling flames and hotspots.
