BRISTOL, Tenn. -

A local pizza parlor will be closed for several weeks after a weekend fire.

Bristol, Tennessee fire crews were called to the Domino's pizza store on West State Street around 8:30 Saturday morning.

We're told there was some damage in the store's utility room.

Management with Domino's says it could be more than three weeks until the facility re-opens.

The area supervisor tells us store employees will be working at other locations until the State Street location re-opens.

"We transferred all the employees to three stores. We transferred the bulk of them to Bristol, Virginia and the rest of them to Abingdon and Blountville.  All of them are getting the same amount of hours, that was our first priority," says Brian Spiva, Area Supervisor for Domino's.

Spiva says an insurance company will assess the damage to determine when the store will reopen.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
