KINGSPORT — Nine people lost their homes Sunday afternoon after a fire destroyed two upstairs apartments and seriously damaged the lone downstairs apartment of a building near Kingsport off of Cooks Valley Road.

The cause of the fire at 230 Summer Private Drive remains under investigation, but Warriors Path Volunteer Fire Department Chief Ben Wexler said it doesn’t appear to be suspicious.

The fire occurred about 1:30 p.m., and many of the firefighters who responded from several departments were already in Kingsport with equipment attending the funeral of Sullivan County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Chad Brooks, who died Tuesday.
