KFD Rescues One Person from House Fire, Three Others Safe but Displaced

The Knoxville Fire Department says one person is hospitalized after a house fire early this (Wednesday) morning.

Crews were called to 2501 Parkview Avenue where they found a two-story wood-framed home on fire.

Firefighters had to force their way into the home where they found one person overcome by smoke downstairs, that person was sent to the hospital and their condition has not been released. Three others were able to get out of the home safely.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The American Red Cross is helping to care for the people who lived at the home.
