GREENBRIER, TN (WSMV) -

The owner of Guns and Leather in Greenbrier said he would rebuild his business after a devastating fire.

The gun and ammunition shop caught fire Saturday around 4 p.m.

Store employees scrambled to remove all the inventory while the fire spread, worried all the ammunition would explode in the heat.

Dennis Williams, who owned the store, said he opened the location in 1999 and had just spent thousands of dollars to improve the gun range.

He promised he would rebuild the store, but said he doesn't yet have a timetable on when it might begin.

Williams said he would move most of the inventory he saved to his other Guns and Leather location in Hendersonville.

Firefighters did not know the cause of the fire.
