PIGEON FORGE (WATE) - Firefighters spent Saturday night and Sunday morning checking up on the ruins of a Sevier County business to make sure any hot spots didn't flare up.

The Pigeon Forge Fire Department said they first learned of the fire Saturday morning after receiving a call about a brush fire.

Firefighters soon discovered that the smoke was actually stemming from a fire at "The Dental Office" along Florence Drive.

Authorities say the fire was too far ahead of them by the time they had arrived, and that the building is considered a total loss.

No injuries were reported. Around 60 firefighters from multiple agencies helped put out the flames.
