One person was injured in a fire Monday afternoon at a South Knoxville business.

Knoxville Fire Department spokesman DJ Corcoran said the person was being treated after a fire broke out at Dave's Wholesale Transmissions on the 1200 block of Maryville Pike in South Knoxville.

Crews fighting the fire have started to contain it after a dark plume of smoke was visible from miles away.

Corcoran said there were six people inside the building when an explosion occurred.

Knoxville police said sections of Maryville Pike are closed as KFD works the structural fire and advised motorists to seek alternate routes if possible.
