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.

    The house may have been saved if there was a fire hydrant in this area. This home is only 2 miles away from the elementary school of Pigeon Forge. Sevierville needs to take care of its residents and not just the tourists interests. Build a million dollar event center, but no sewer or water for the people living here supporting the town all year around. Rezone this area to Pigeon Forge if Sevierville can't handle its residents.
