The cause of an accessory building fire was not officially determined on Wednesday. Knox Fire Chief Bill Vinson said the building appeared to be used for storage and mechanical work and stood about 50 feet away from the nearest house.

KNOX — Firefighters watched from afar as Kenneth Fortuin's buildings burned at his Saddlemire Road residence, unable to get to the scene on Wednesday night. Their path to the fire was blocked by cut-down trees and Fortuin, said to be armed, threatened to harm anyone who approached the scene, police said.
