DEVELOPING: Investigators on scene of a fire in Coeburn


UPDATE: Col. Kilgore said there was an explosion caused by propane that was being stored in the barn. He said there is nothing suspicious at this time. 


After receiving a message on Facebook of a possible explosion in Coeburn, News 5 reached out to the Wise County Sheriff's Office for more information. 

Grant Kilgore, with the WCSO, told us that they were on scene of a fire on W.M. Buchanan Rd. The call came in as an explosion, but Kilgore told us shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday that there was no evidence of that so far. 

If we learn any more about this incident, we will let you know on air and online.
