WZTV FOX 17 - Tennessee Mornings
Thursday sparked more problems on Loretta Lynn's Hurricane Mills ranch.
A concession stand went up in flames on the property around 7:30pm. The fire started after employees were on site preparing to re-open the ranch to the public after being closed for the winter.
The electricity had recently been restored on property before the fire started but authorities with the Humphreys Co. Fire Department could not immediately give an official cause.
The heavy smoke and flames caused significant damage on the property and the fire is still under investigation.
Loretta Lynn issued a statement on her Twitter account Thursday night thanking everyone for their concern.
The fire is the latest of problems seen on the Hurricane Mills ranch in recent months. Straight line winds are getting the blame for causing $100,000 of damage when aggressive storms moved through Tennessee back in January.
