Sevier County firefighters busy overnight

Sevier County (WVLT) - Sevier County 911 dispatchers say at least half of all the fire departments in the county were busy responding to two overnight house fires.

Dispatchers say just before 1:30 this morning, they received a call of a house fire at 3010 Patty View Way off Walden's Creek Road.
Dispatchers say firefighters were unable to save the three story house and it was a total loss.

About an hour and a half later, Just after 3:00 a.m., dispatchers received a call of another house fire at 4025 Forest Trail Drive.
Because several fire departments were already working the fire on Patty View Way, dispatchers had to call out firefighters from several other fire departments.
No word on the extent of damage to that house.

No one was injured in either house fire.
