Knoxville streets closed by smoke have reopened

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Officials have reopened some streets near downtown Knoxville that were closed last Sunday due to thick smoke from a large mulch fire.

WVLT (http://bit.ly/J25pdH) reports that the streets were reopened Saturday evening as fire crews continued to make progress in fighting the fire.

Knoxville firefighters have been battling the stubborn blaze at the Shamrock Organic Products yard, which takes in yard waste under a city contract.
