Loudon County Courthouse Could Be a Total Loss

One of the oldest courthouses in Tennessee caught fire Tuesday night. Investigators say a fire at the Loudon County Courthouse started around 6:30.

It took over three hours to get the flames under control, but not before part of the roof collapsed. Mayor Buddy Bradshaw says the building could be a total loss.

Preliminary reports say the fire may have started from a malfunctioning light switch. However, they’re still investigating an exact cause.

The Loudon County Courthouse was built in 1872.
