More Video...

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Fire investigators returned to the scene of a massive condo fire in west Knoxville Thursday morning. As the sun rose, flames rekindled and smoke started pouring out again forcing firefighters to come back, too, to take care of hot spots.

While hardly any damage could be seen from the front of the Wimbledon Condos, a trip around back reveals the destruction where the blaze looks to have destroyed four garages and spread through several of the homes.

One woman was taken to the hospital Wednesday night. Her condition is unknown at the time.

According to fire officials, the fire started in one of the garages around 10:45 p.m. Investigators are still trying to determine a specific cause.
