Massive Fire Destroys Sevierville Business

Knoxville (WVLT) - Fire destroys a strip mall in Sevierville.

Take a look at this dramatic video, right along busy highway 66.

A Sevierville city spokesman tells us just before eight p.m., firefighters were called to Maplewood Farms, right along Winfield Dunn Parkway where a strip mall was fully engulfed.

It took firefighters more than an hour to contain the flames.

The building is a total loss.

Firefighters say they may not know until Saturday what caused the fire.

"Once it cools off, we'll be able to get in there, we'll start investigating," Sevierville spokesman Bob Stalhke said.

No other buildings nearby were affected, but it did stop traffic in all directions for miles.
