Early morning fire destroys house

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Investigators are looking into a fire early Monday morning north of Seymour that completely destroyed a house on Dodson Rd.

The Seymour Volunteer Fire Dept. and Rural Metro responded to the fire around 1:15 a.m. Monday morning at the house, which sits on the 7800 block of Dodson Rd.

The house, an RV and another building were destroyed in the fire.

As it grew larger and more dangerous, crews on the scene were forced into defensive mode.

Fire officials do not know if anyone was living at the home.
