Crews Bring Cadaver Dogs to Hunt for Possible Remains in Warehouse

Knoxville (WVLT) - Cadaver dogs are slowly making their way through the McClung warehouses damaged by fire.

They've gotten a few tips that some homeless people who usually frequent the city's shelters haven't been seen since the day of the fire.

That's not abnormal, but investigators want to rule out that they may have been inside.

Today's search slowed down early, after concerns that a wall was unstable.

But investigators are sifting through scoops and scoops of the destroyed building as they are being removed.

Meanwhile, authorities have charged 38-year-old Barry Thomas Jones with possession of a stolen vehicle after the truck of McClung Warehouse owner Mark Saroff turned up in Asheville North Carolina.

Jones remains in a North Carolina jail.
