Fire destroys three structures south of Kingsport

KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -  Three buildings are being called a total loss after a fire started in an outbuilding south of Kingsport.

An outbuilding, mobile home, and camper on a property off of Hood Road West were all engulfed in flames. Fire officials say the two people who lived in the mobile home were able to make it out safely.

Bobby Jones with the Sullivan West Volunteer Fire Department tells us they worked as fast as they could to get water to the burning home.

"Due to county location there are not hydrants on all roads, closest hydrant was back out at the end of the road here, we did a great job, all the other departments did a great job responding and staging at the hydrants, shuttling water into us where we need to be," said Jones.

The fire is still under investigation and authorities have not released an official cause.
