TWO young people may be tried as adults over a deadly wildfire in the most popular national park in the US. Authorities have charged them with aggravated arson over the fire, which killed 14 people and destroyed or damaged more than 1700 buildings. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, local attorney-general James Dunn and Great Smoky Mountains National Park jointly announced the charges but released few specifics about the suspects or how the fires started. About 800 firefighters are still battling the blaze. It started on November 23 and exploded five days later.
