KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — A young boy has died and three others were injured when a Knoxville home caught fire.
Media cited a statement from the Knoxville Fire Department in reporting that 23-month-old Eli Blaze Dellinger died. An adult and two other children in the home were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Fire Department Capt. D.J. Corcoran says all three were expected to recover. Their names were not immediately released.
According to the statement, firefighters arrived at the home about 11:45 p.m. Monday to find flames had reached the roof and were coming out of the windows.
Meanwhile, another fatal blaze was reported in Hixson. Chattanooga fire officials say they responded Monday night and found a body in the back bedroom of a home.
Firefighters are investigating what caused both blazes.
