CARYVILLE, TN (WLAF) – There were no reports of injury when a fire at a Caryville motel was called in to central dispatch at 3:29am today.
Caryville’s Fire and Police Departments responded to the Tennessee Motel after the call of smoke coming through the attic and walls came in. Officials said the smoke was coming from room 10 where an air conditioning unit shorted out catching the wood framing of the building on fire.
The motel sits on a hill above old Highway 63 near the Caryville Municipal building.
