Fire destroys family's home in Seymour

SEVIER COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - A family was forced from their Seymour home Monday night.

The fire broke out Monday evening and destroyed a home on Double D Drive.

Everyone made it out safely but the home is a complete loss. Investigators say the fire started in the kitchen.

"It's just a frustrating kind of sequence of events. You can never get ahead of the fire. The fire has too much fuel, too much heat build up in the attic and once it gets in attic it spreads through out the entire house," Chief Kevin Nunn of the Seymour Volunteer Fire Dept. told Local 8 News.

Fire officials say the family moved in about a month ago.
