Cookeville Fire Department Responds To Fire On S. Willow Tuesday Morning

Cookeville Fire Department crews responded to a commercial fire on South Willow Avenue in less than a minute Tuesday morning.

Lieutenant Zachary Womack said the fire at the electronic repair shop began around 11:20 a.m.

“We found the fire in the middle of the building, got a pretty quick knockdown on it but had to do a lot of overhaul due to the contents of the building,” Womack said. “We got it under control in about a 30-minute time frame.”

Womack said due to fire, smoke, and water damage from putting out the fire, the building sustained major damage. He said there were no injuries, and that the building was unoccupied at the time as the employee had left for lunch.

Womack said the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
