SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Sevier County investigators are still working to figure out what started a fire at a cabin last week.

Firefighters were called to the home on Spence Mountain last Wednesday about 1pm. Firefighters say someone driving by saw the cabin on fire and the home was a total loss, but no one was hurt during the fire.

Sevier County Fire Spokesperson, Paul Lambert, said the cause of the fire is under investigation. He says the fire was kept from spreading into the woods and to a nearby home. Lamber said so far the county's arson investigator hasn't figured out how the fire started.

Sevier County Firefighters were helped by Pigeon Forge and Caton's Chapel Fire Departments.
