Knoxville fire investigators calling warehouse fire suspicious

Knoxville (WVLT) - Knoxville firefighters responded to a warehouse that caught fire early this morning in West Knoxville.

Captain Brent Seymour with the Knoxville Fire Department says the fire started around 1:30 this morning at the vacant warehouse located at 1932 Middlebrook Pike.

When firefighters arrived, fire was coming out of the rear of the warehouse.

It took firefighters about an hour and a half to bring the fire under control.

Investigators are calling the fire suspicious because there was no power connected to the building.

No one was injured in the fire.
