State offers free mortgage assistance hotline

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee homeowners facing possible foreclosure can call a free hotline for help.

According to the state attorney general's office, Tennessee's Mortgage Assistance Hotline offers reliable information and referrals to free foreclosure prevention counseling.
