DANDRIDGE, Tenn. (WATE) — A multi-million dollar home on Douglas Lake went up in flames April 5, according to the Dandridge Volunteer Fire Department Chief Andrew Riley.

Two people got out of the home unharmed, but the $4.25 million, 8,600 square-foot home on Filet Lane is a “total loss,” Riley said.

Riley said crews had to shuttle water from a fire hydrant over a mile away.

More than 30 firefighters were at the scene for nearly 6 hours, into the early morning.

Fire crews from Dandridge Fire, Lakeway Central Fire Department, Jefferson City Fire Department, Kansas-Talbott Fire Department, New Market Fire Department, White Pine Fire Department, Northview Kodak Fire Department and West Hamblen Fire Department helped put out the fire.
