The Marion County Fire Investigator and the Knoxville Fire Department is seeking photos and video of the fire in Knoxville Monday afternoon. The event was photographed and videotaped by many in the crowd that gathered to observe the fire, and any photographs and video obtained by the public may be useful in the investigation of the cause of the fire. If you have video or photos that you believe might be useful, send them to knoxvillenews@kniakrls.com, or bring them by the KNIA/KRlS studio, or to the Knoxville Fire Department, or the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

While the upper floor to the building engulfed by the fire has been destroyed, Knoxville Fire Chief Nick Bonstell tells KNIA/KRLS that he hopes that the businesses on both sides of the building will be able to continue business soon, despite the water and smoke damage to the buildings.
