Sunbright, Morgan County (AP) -- The Morgan County Sheriff says an early-morning fire killed Harold Hagan and destroyed the home he lived in.
Sheriff Dennis Ledbetter says Hagan's wife, Helen, called 911 from the burning house at 3:42 a.m. She and the couple's son escaped the fire.
The rural home was about 45 miles northwest of Knoxville. The Sunbright and Wartburg Fire Departments responded to the blaze.
Ledbetter says the fire is still under investigation, but appears to be accidental.
