Comments: Tower is not in too bad of shape, probably due to remote
location. This tower has not been staffed in some time, but site appears to
be maintained by TN Department of Forestry. Tower is 100' standard aermotor
tower. The wood stairs and landings are very weathered, with several of the
boards on the upper landings rotted and broken. The door to the tower cab
was open, so I decided to go inside. First, I had to wait for the tower
occupant, a large Grey Owl to vacate. Obviously from the amount of excrement
on the tower floor, he had been occupying the tower for some time. There
were two window panes broken out, but otherwise the cab was fairly secure.
Nearby is a Forestry building of similar size as other sites (approximately
10' x 12'). This building was locked. A sign on top of the building stated
Lutts Firetower, District 6.
