Condominium towers, apartment buildings, and townhouses have burned, homes have been destroyed, and at least three people have died, according to fire officials.
The blaze, the worst in nearly two decades in North Carolina, is the second major fire in the state.
The first, a devastating blaze in October 2015, left hundreds dead.
The fire that has charred more than 5,000 acres has burned nearly 600 structures and displaced hundreds of people, and forced hundreds more to flee the region.
It’s the third major fire to hit the state this year.
A few weeks ago, more than 1,000 firefighters battled a wildfire in the Panhandle region that forced more than a dozen communities to evacuate.
In addition to the Pinetrees, a condo tower was destroyed in a separate blaze on Tuesday.
Another condo tower in the city of North Carolina was destroyed by the same fire, and a home was destroyed on Tuesday in the town of Franklin.
The Pinetreed condo complex on the edge of Asheville is a luxury apartment building that opened in 2009.
The owner of the building said it was destroyed because the fire was burning through the basement.
He said he did not know if the fire started in the basement or if the building was vacant.
