Smoke from a warehouse fire was seen rising over the CMA Fest crowd in downtown Nashville on Saturday afternoon, but was not on the festival grounds.
The fire was reported around 3:30 p.m. in the 100 block of North 1st Street, near Nissan Stadium. The building was “fully involved” as crews arrived, the Nashville Fire Department said.
North 1st Street is blocked as multiple crews worked to contain the blaze. No injuries had been reported as of 4:45 p.m., according to NFD.
Shortly after 7 p.m., NFD said the fire is out and a search of the area for any persons inside turned up empty.
“Cadaver K9s have been requested to the scene to thoroughly check the areas covered in debris that responders cannot access,” a tweet from NFD said.
