Pikeville Business Goes Up In Flames

Thacker's Transmission employees say they smelled smoke and then all the sudden flames were shooting through the roof. It took two fire departments to put out the fire. Firemen say they're lucky they contained the fire before it got into the garage area because of the flammable materials inside.

"It could have been a lot worse that what went on with the type of business that's here. We're thankful we got it taken care of. They're still in there working, hopefully everybody is safe and nobody got hurt," said Levi Coleman with the Coal Run Fire Department.

Investigators haven't been able to get inside to determine the cause yet.
