Fire in Sale Creek

Sale Creek, TN (WDEF) – Early Sunday morning, Sale Creek firefighters faced challenges in gaining access to a cabin fire.

Responding to a fire approximate to the 900 block of Mayflower Road, fire crews reported a blaze off the main road, and requested four-wheel drive vehicles to transport firefighters.

Once accessible, fire personnel reported a woods fire and a cabin burnt to the ground.

Since water was inaccessible, firefighters dug a fire break around the burning cabin and the woods fire to allow the fire to burn itself out.

Fire officials confirmed no one was living in the cabin, but believe someone did not extinguish the wood stove.

Damages are unknown at this time.
