TAZEWELL COUNTY, Tenn. -

We have new facts on a fire at a Tazewell County food pantry.

Richlands Police tell us the fire happened around 8 p.m. at the Good Samaritan food pantry. No one was injured, but the building will be a total loss.

Police say most of the damage occurred in the area where they store clothing. Good Samaritan was able to salvage some food and take it to a local farmer's market.

We're told an electrical issue with wall wiring might have caused the blaze.

Police don't suspect any foul play.
