Investigating Cause Of Wednesday's Blaze



Fire consumed a decades-old cabinet shop in eastern Greene County early Wednesday morning, an official with the Tusculum Volunteer Fire Department confirmed.

No one was in the business when it burned, but one volunteer firefighter received minor injuries, Lieutenant Phillip Mullett said.

"We have not been able to determine what caused the fire," he said this morning. "It was fully inflamed when we arrived."

The fire destroyed the cabinet shop, owned by Charlie DiBella, Mullet said.

The DiBella family noticed the building was on fire about 2:30 a.m., after a transformer exploded, Mullet said. The Afton business was 40 years old.

Responding to the fire in addition to the Tusculum Volunteer Fire Department were the Camp Creek Volunteer Fire Department, the Nolichuckey Volunteer Fire Department, the Greene County Sheriff's Department, and Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services.
