Sevierville Fire Department firefighters responded to a cabin fire just before 8 p.m. in Echota Resort last night, Monday, February 25, 2019. The cabin was located at 1010 Walini Way.
The cabin was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and shortly after beginning to fight the fire, the second story and roof collapsed, causing the fire to increase. The fire was brought under control about an hour later.
When not responding to calls for service and performing their regular job duties, Sevierville Fire Department staff is staying busy getting the new headquarters ready to open.
“So far, our fire marshal and fire inspector have moved in” to the new headquarters, said SFD Chief Matt Henderson. “After the radio system and exhaust removal system are installed later this week, we’ll be able to shift our operations to the new facility. The goal is to be responding to calls for service by the end of this month from our new home.” A grand opening has been scheduled for April 5; details will be released closer to date.
