A: In Tennessee, property owners or companies causing nuisances to neighboring properties may be liable for damages. If ash from their activities is covering your vehicles, they could be held responsible for cleanup costs. Document the damage, keep records of any cleanup costs, and communicate your concerns with the responsible parties. Local ordinances or state regulations might also address this type of nuisance. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.
