CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Country music superstar Tim McGraw is in the Scenic City on Wednesday for day two of shooting his latest music video for the song, "Truck Yeah."

Two off-duty firefighters from the Chattanooga Fire Department are being used to "wet stuff down," according to CFD Spokesman Bruce Garner.

A location scout confirms to Channel 3 that approximately 50 local extras have been hired for the video shoot. No additional extras are needed. A helicopter is also being used.

The video shoot is taking place on a privately owned street in downtown Chattanooga near the old U.S. Pipe site. Fans will not be allowed near the video shoot.

Channel 3 has confirmed that McGraw found an abandoned building he wanted to use for the shoot on a recent visit to Chattanooga. A location scout was then able to confirm the owner of the building and lease it for the shoot.
