SEVIERVILLE (WATE) - A fire blazed a rental cabin Saturday morning in Sevier County, but no one was injured.

According to the Pigeon Forge Fire Department, firefighters responded to a bedroom fire call around 2 a.m. on the 1300 block of Iris Court in the Sky Harbor community.

By the time firefighters arrived, the blaze was fully involved. Only a few walls were left standing once the flames were extinguished.

Two people were renting the cabin at the time of the fire, but both occupants escaped safely.

Tankers from the city of Gatlinburg and Caton's Chapel Volunteer Fire Department aided the Pigeon Forge Fire Department.  By almost 6 a.m., the fire departments were able to leave the scene.

The structure is considered a total loss, and the fire is under investigation.
