The Summers’ three sons, Branson and twins Wesley and Jared, all in their early 20s, are hospitalized in critical condition at the Vanderbilt Medical Center Burn Unit. 

A family friend told our Raycom sister station in Memphis WMC that flames came up on the cabin the family was staying in and a tree blocked the road as they tried to get out. The brothers got separated from their parents and were found unconscious. 

The family moved from New Albany, Indiana to Memphis, Tennessee and were on vacation at Gatlinburg when the wildfires started.
