Ten separate fires charred more than 750 acres in several counties before the rain started falling on Saturday. Ted Dailey, District Forester for the Tennessee Division of Forestry said we entered the weekend at a Level 5 for fire danger. Now, we are back at Level 1.

Burn permits are being issued once again.
