NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Gov. Bill Haslam touched on some of the criticism officials have received regarding their response to the wildfires in Sevier County.
“I will say this. We’re at the point where everybody is saying you know, what happened, what could’ve been done better. Don’t lose the fact that a lot of people did incredible work. First responders, local government officials, state officials. I was incredibly impressed by the great work that happened, that kept it from being even greater loss of life,” he said.
He said the abundance of support he has seen across the state is encouraging.
