A fire caused heavy damage to a large, one-story house on Old Harriman Highway early Sunday morning.
The fire was reported at 883 Old Harriman Highway at 3:40 a.m. Sunday, March 22.
The house was in the Blair Fire Department’s district. The Oliver Springs Fire Department, the Midtown Fire Department, and the Roane County Office of Emergency Services responded with a total of seven engine/tankers and two rescue units. The Anderson County Emergency Services sent a medic unit, and a Harriman Utilities Board crew cut the power to the house, which was heavily damaged, fire photographer Tom Scott said.
Water was hauled from a hydrant on Old Harriman Highway about a half-mile away. Scott said fire units were on the scene for about three hours.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
