KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knoxville Fire Department says a fire that destroyed an abandoned home in East Knoxville Sunday may have been set intentionally.

Firefighters responded to 1904 Victoria Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Sunday morning to find the home overtaken by flames.

The Knoxville Fire Department says no utilities were connected to the home. 

They say flames were coming out of the windows of the home. KFD spoke with the homeowner, who says the home has been empty for several years.

Arson investigators are looking into the possibility of a transient starting the fire.

No injuries were reported in the fire and no charges are being filed at this time.
