GATLINBURG, TN (WMC) -

Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

I like so many of you have watched in gut wrenching horror as Gatlinburg and the surrounding area burned this week.

I, like so many of you, am praying for the Summers family who got trapped in the wildfires.

There is just something about Gatlinburg that holds so many special memories for so many of us. 

From vacations to honeymoons to weddings to family reunions -- it's such a special place to visit.

Our neighbors to the east need us now -- need our prayers, our help, our donations. 

If you can give, click here to learn the best way to do so.

Helping our neighbors in need makes this A Better Mid-South.
