Gatlinburg residents and business owners will be able to go back to their properties Wednesday, however the city won't be open for the public until Friday. Officials said property and business owners, renters, and lease holders will be allowed to return to full-time occupancy beginning 7:00 a.m. The Gatlinburg area has been closed to public access as officials clear streets and recover from the November 28 wildfire that killed at least 14 people. More than 1700 buildings in Sevier County were destroyed or damaged.
