KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A house fire was spotted Tuesday morning by several drivers on Interstate 640 and reported to 911.

Firefighters were called to the home at 4514 Nora Rd. near the North Broadway exit, though when first reported no one was sure where it was located.

When the firefighters found the house it was fully engulfed in flames and surrounded by a thick overgrowth of trees and brush.

After checking to make sure no one was inside fire crews determined no power was supplied to the home and it was likely abandoned.

No injuries were reported in fighting the fire.

Investigators say it appears the fire was intentionally set.
