CARTER COUNTY, Tenn. -

Carter County 911 told us Monday the U.S. Forestry Department is doing a controlled burn on Holston Mountain near South Holston Lake.

Smoke can be seen from the Stoney Creek section of Carter County.

Crews are aware of the fire and forestry personnel are on scene. The fire is expected to last several days.

They ask that residents don’t call 911 about the smoke unless the fire is actually threatening their personal property.
