Stages West Pigeon Forge Fire 2015
The original call for the fire happened a little before 6 a.m. on Thursday, August 6, 2015, and the fire was completely out by 6:30 a.m. There were no injuries, but everything in the store was ruined.
The weight of the water on the roof caused the roof to fall in, so it was a combination of water and fire that destroyed the building and all of the merchandise inside.
