Fire destroys Knox County home

KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) - A Knox County couple was left without a home Tuesday night after a huge fire.

Fire destroyed their house off Maryville Pike.

Flames shot high into the air.

A relative says the couple lived in the house for about 10 years.
They weren't home at the time.

"I assume they'll rebuild, they're very resilient people and i'm sure they'll do a nice job in restoring everything," Don Kurka, the victim's bother said.

A firefighter fell from a ladder and went to UT Medical Center with minor injuries.

Officials are still looking for a cause.
